Sketch of Lisa - original oil pastel portrait painting

I worked on two oil pastel paintings today - the idea was to post one to my oil pastel blog and the other to this one, but the other painting isn't ready, so here's the little (7 x 5") sketch for Hackberry Street Studio.  This painting/sketch was done from a drawing from life and I allowed myself a short time to do it so it wouldn't be overworked.  At least, I hope it isn't.  Mostly Sennelier, with a few Caran d'Ache on Pastelbord.  Digging through my 'stuff', I found a bunch of things that I forgot about and I suspect will be showing up here in the coming weeks.  Do you do that?  Find things to resurrect?  Such fun - sometimes they work, sometimes they don't, but it's fun trying!  Thanks for stopping by!

As I'm so new, I haven't acquire enough work to be found and resurrected yet. I'm sure in the future. Love your new painting!

This is very good. I am constantly finding subjects forgotten or started and ignored for the next big idea.

Beautiful work, Connie! I love her pose..I have a few pieces that I was going to trash but I think I'll give them another look and work on it.
