Have you ever had a bliss moment, when all around you faded and you were transported into a state of pure light and consciousness? Nothing sexual or drug induced, but a pure state where you felt like you had stepped out of your skin and had blended in with all the energy, love and joy around you? Me neither, but I sure would like to one day…

What on Earth is a Pastel?

Pastel as an artistic medium is pure pigment dust held together by a transparent binder and formed in a stick or encased in a pencil. Pastel works age beautifully, their brilliant colour does not fade with the passing of time.

This artwork was created with pastel pencils on Clairefontaine Pastelmat®, a paper card specially created for pastel paintings. The pastel pigments bind greatly with the Pastelmat, and no fixative is needed to secure the applied layers. However, pastel works should never be directly touched. They are best kept under a matted, glass-protected frame and away from high humidity, direct sunlight, or extreme heat.
