Anne and I live in North Thetford VT. Anne is also an artist. We have studios at 39 Bridge Street, North Thetford, VT. If you want to see more of my work, or visit our studios, please email using the contact page.
I work both in acrylic and soft pastel. For me, using a soft pastel half-stick on its side quickly is very much like using acrylic with a flat brush stroke on canvas. Both have an immediacy and freshness which I enjoy. So my work goes down fairly quickly...at least initially. I like to keep a play of color and visible application throughout. You can see a difference in the outdoor pastel work and the studio work. The studio work does not relate to what is in front of me. It is what I am thinking about or an idea that forms while I am painting.
