I have loved art every since I was a small child. I became an elementary school teacher and did art with my students in different subject areas. When I retired in 2010, it was time to pursue art for myself. I took a variety of classes at the La Grange and Dupage Art Leagues. When I found pastels, I knew I had found my medium!
Pastels feel good in my hand. The colors are vibrant and they are on my paper instantly. I use a swiping motion and if I make a mistake, it can be corrected.
