Oil Pastel Paintings

As an oil pastel artist, Rachel sets herself apart with her layering technique. Traditionally, multiple layers of oil pastels on canvas will blend softly very easily with each subsequent layer. But Rachel's technique applies distinct color layers that "peek" through in places, unblended or muddled, giving her paintings a uniquely vibrant depth of color.

"You give me anxiety"
Sometimes I hold my head high
Sometimes I walk with poise
Sometimes I close my eyes
Sometimes I close off
And sometimes
I have to close a door

It's the salt in the air
It bleeds adventure
It's the unknown
It beats for passion
It's the rush of excitement
It flutters for a first
It's the chance on something bigger than ourselves
It lives for the thrill
