I am absolutely in love with these pastels . I love how I can capture the light and shadows, the incredible palette of grays the darkness that defines the space. The way I can move the color with my hands, almost like a dance. It keeps just flowing and its a wonderful feeling

I have always wanted to try pastels. Always. I love the way they look, what you can do with them, the way they make you feel. But they are also expensive, and I have enough stuff in my studio-and then, and then, my dear friend gave me a huge lot of them-all the colors you could imagine. I brought that big heavy bag up the stairs and took out each tray like it was a piece of gold and just feasted my eyes. But today I took one in my hand, and it was love, it was a fairy tale, things flowed and blended and came together like magic.
What a dream, and how grateful I am that J decided to clean out her studio and gift me with all sorts of treasures. Can't wait to get to work tomorrow...
