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 ;)
