Soft Pastel Paintings

 

I try to convey my emotional response to Maine's rugged beauty and light through my soft pastel landscapes and seascapes. Using color toned paper or panels provides a unifying hue throughout a soft pastel painting. For other soft pastel paintings, I first create an "underpainting" in another medium, often in complementary colors.  Here is a small sampling of available pastel paintings and selected paintings now in private collections. I have many other works available. Please contact me if you are interested in a specific painting.
