Pastel paintings magical and visionary, inner worlds and landscapes, themes of pregnancy, birth, children, death and crossing over, the Woodstock valley in different seasons, trees and skies.
All of the pastels
shown here were done between 1973 and 1976. They were done with pencil
pastels on a special paper that has a flocked surface making it like a
stiff velvet that catches the pastel. I was introduced to this kind of
paper and the pencil pastels when I was in Austria in 1972. A stiff
paintbrush is used to remove excess pigment and additional work is done
over that allowing the image to be developed over time. Some of the
flocked paper is colored, including pink, blue, and grey tones which
show through in the work.
