Oil on Wallis sanded pastel paper, 7" x 12" SOLD
This painting is much more luminous and lovely than it looks
in this photograph. It is not matte, but rather quite glossy.
It might seem strange to be painting on pastel paper, but quite
a few people do it, because it is an impervious surface, and also
archival. -- To tell the truth, this actually started out as a pastel
drawing, but halfway through, I just got the urge to use oils. There
was something about the light, and the color of the drape that
she is sitting on. I felt like doing a loose, sort of bravura study
and nothing lends itself to that like oil paint!

I was thinking the painting looked luminous and lovely in the picture. It's beautiful.
