Roughly, pastels began 250 years ago, although colored chalks have been used for thousands of years.  Pastels, watercolor and oil paints all share the same component, pigment.  Pastels, to me, have an immediacy.  There is no drying time.  Colors are laid upon each other instead of mixing on a palette.  They are wonderful and wonderfully messy.  They are a delightful medium, which has come full flower.  The colors are vivid and rich, very exciting to the eye.   These pastel prints are printed from the originals using archival ink and quality Epson paper.  We can provide larger/smaller sized prints upon request.
