Tiger Girl is a pastel on BFK, measuring 53 in. H x 43 in. W, and created in 2012.  I created a pastel series during this time of seated figures as a way of working with color while staying with a dry material.  This became a chance to focus on relatively simple gestures that carried rich meaning, and an opportunity to work with a material that was saturated and fresh, easily lending itself to a storytelling dialogue.
