Medium + Method: Oil pastels.
The Image: Links. Building blocks. Stepping stones. Connection. Balance. Exhaustion. Frustration. Determination.
The Backstory: After the EVOO/watercolor application proved too difficult (and likely monochromatic as my palette was going to be limited to the one or two tubes that had survived the years), I delved into another medium: oil pastels. I’ve never liked oil pastels. They are really messy and hard to control, all the worse when they are 30-years old and applied on a gessoed canvas.
