The Nude Model - original oil pastel painting of a nude

This nude painting is done on 7 x 5" on Pastelbord - that marvelous surface for oil pastel - and was done quickly without lots of attention to detail.  That's my favorite thing, you know.
I love this time of year, sitting here listening to Christmas music - right now, Andrea Bocelli's Christmas album is playing.  Beautiful!  
I hope all is well with you and thanks so much for stopping by! Sold

Hilda - I laughed when I read your comment about the dirt in your face, realizing that's exactly what happened to me this past summer at a rodeo - I got dirt in my face from sitting "ringside". So I am really flattered that my artwork made you feel that way! Thank you so much for your comments - I love them!
