I made this with oil pastels.  It was a happy accident actually.  We cleaned up the office recently and we found a bunch of art supplies that someone in the office had donated a long time ago.  When they resurfaced again the art supplies philanthropist 🙂 decided she didn’t really want them anymore so they were donated in turn to whomever would take them.  I had seen the box of oil pastels but thought it was the same kind I have at home, which are chalk pastels (goes to show how much art background I have).  After a few days they were still there while the colorful pipe cleaners, stickers, finger paints and all the other cool stuff had been whisked away fast.  I felt sad for them so I decided to take them home.  I am glad I did. They’re fun, rough, vibrant, bright.  They force me to work with even less detail.  I like them. I can see myself working more with them in the future.
