Artist Statement

P.E. Creedon, Artistís Statement

Color is number one with me in my pastel paintings. I shied away from color for years, doing mostly pencil drawings of figures. In my search for a new medium a few years back I tried colored pencils first. It felt familiar. But I soon found that the color, though a nice change for me, was not rich enough. My wife, Patricia, also an artist had tried pastels but never took to them. So we traded. She found the colored pencils perfect for her pet portraits. While I immediately fell in love with pastels.

I do pastels differently from most in that I like to layer it, spray fixative, then layer some more. This gives it the depth and richness I want.
People find my pastels to be warm and inviting, colorful and much more like oils than pastel. I want to continue exploring along these lines while also incorporating more texture....
