Oil Pastels

I have concentrated more on oil pastels the past few years, working outdoors in all of the places I find inspirational. They bring out my drawing abilities, and help me create a solid form as well as capturing light qualities I might miss in the studio process. With a great fearlessness and confidence in my ability to draw the oil pastels have guided me back into a more linear approach, though keeping the texture and overall look of painting in my work.
