New Pastel: Bright Encounter

New pastel on sanded paper, Bright Encounter, 14 x 14 inches.
This began as a completely different image, but the pastel got away from me, so I turned it upside down and began a new work over the failed one.  I do like the way this worked out via the moves I made to make this work a success.

Careful hanging around Casey Klahn...he can be a good motivator. This was pastel was done at his great workshop last weekend.  There were a lot of good works that resulted while we were 'under the influence."  thanks Casey...that dent you put in my head is barely showing now, and I have some nice pastels to show for it  ;)
Unframed, $1100.
