Old and New

Young Bull 60" X 80" Pastel and chalk on paper
This piece was completed a few years ago and hangs in the home of some good friends of mine.  I was recently visiting and was pleasantly surprised by the affinity I had for the work.  The work is done in pastel on a very large piece of paper, about 60" X 80" in size— so no small undertaking.  Pastel or chalk is a wonderful medium to work in as it can be manipulated in countless ways and the color mixing can occur right on the paper which can produce spontaneous results and (usually) good surprises.  So I am now inspired to do another piece in this medium and also try this piece in oil.  I will keep you updated on the progress.
