Gabriel Meets Gloria*
1985
Pastel on gessoed linen
69 1/2 x 50 1/2 inches

* Reference:
Archangel Gabriel and Hurricane Gloria

Utilizing soft pastels on
gesso covered linen is
a unique use of the
medium - a traditional
drawing medium becomes
a rich painting medium.

My use of pastels began
in Venice, Italy
