In lieu of being academically productive, I’ve made two new oil pastel works:

One:



Two:


They’re both untitled as of now, and unsealed.  Both started as rescued thrift-store art.  The larger one in the gold frame is painted over an ugly “Texas Hold ‘Em” wall hanging that just happened to be in a beautiful frame; the smaller one is over a picture of some garden trowels.  I just gessoed over the old stuff and painted on my new images.  The one in the gold frame is painted in water-soluble oil pastels with a super-limited color palette (8 colors), while the other one was done using a set that contained 32 pastels.

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.
