Jade Buddha - oil pastel still life

Now for something completely different - for me, anyway. I have always loved this Buddha figurine, so just decided to paint it, instead of my usual subjects - hope I did it justice. Actually, I did this the other day, and it is a daily painting, just not today's daily painting.

This oil pastel is on 8 x 10" Ampersand Pastelbord. I love this stuff (Pastelbord)! The oil pastel feels very dry after a few days and then, being oil pastel, you can just spray the heck out of it with fixative, varnish it and frame without glass. At least, that's what I've been doing lately.

Thank you for visiting my blog!

I like this Connie. There is a lot going on, but it invites speculation. The flower eavesdropping on the figures in the photograph. The figures themselves. Buddha almost takes a back seat, which I'm sure he wouldn't mind. I hadn't seen your work before so scrolled through. I like it very much. Thanks for sharing.
