Soft Pastel Paintings

The velvety texture of soft pastels on sanded paper is heightened by the vibrancy of pure pigment layered to reflect shadow and light. For me, the experience of painting with soft pastels evokes a sense of freedom akin to finger painting as a child. The connection of the artist to the medium is a part of the experience, from touching the soft pastels, visible marks of action on paper, messy hands covered in pigment, and the beauty that flows from those moments of freedom.
