Garden Pastel Series
2016 / Chalk Pastel
At the beginning of my summer break I challenged myself with these questions: could I get up every day and create a piece of work? Could I dig in and explore one media and understand it? I chose to create pieces of my flower gardens that were 'en plein air' - in the open air. I worked with pastels on sanded paper in the gardens, working with the light and the limited time it allowed before the colors and shadows changed.
