My pastel drawings are a very personal aspect of my work. I see them as poetry for the eyes, and believe there to be no better medium to communicate this. Plein Air is my focus, but I do touch up some pieces after the fact. When I'm gone, these works will be a map of my time here, both in the artistic and physical sense. They depict where I have been, what I have seen, and what I was personally moved by.
Just an Easel and a Dream encompasses all of my plein air pastel work.
