pastel painting is truly my passion , my out let for inward pressure's that every artist encounter not matter what gift they possess. useing pastel pigements could can be very challenging but rewarding as well only if the proper materials are used. pure pigements better known as pastel should be understood that they are not a chalk that teacher's and students use on black board as in schools. but there are colors pressed from plants of all colors of shades. in- fact it was the caveman who first used this medium in caves on the walls thousands of years before
painting came into heart of man. I call it pure pigement painting. have you ever wondered why this pigement can never stick to paper no matter what on the surface of it? it can not stick , and will never stick. because paper was never intented for this medium which I'll explain in my up coming book " The secret technique's of pastel painting. this book is a must have for every pastelist which will give one a better understanding of medium and the subject they choose. I was born and raised in Dayton Ohio, when coming to the understanding that the local studio's could not satisfy my artist thirst I new right then and there I had to make my way to the artistic capatal of the world Europe! I wanted to feel, see, and taste, world art created by the masters who we all love. this site is to inspire all who looks on and money is not my motive for the displays but to inspire those to paint and paint some more .
