I saw the photograph this picture is based on over at Nuttin But Hound Dogs , I loved the color and composition so much, I had to try to "paint" it with my oil pastels. Poolie- I'd be glad to mail it to you, if you e-mail me your address.
Alaina attended an art camp this summer, and returned home with a pack of oil pastels and much inspiration. Enthusiasm is contagious, so soon I was giving them a try as well. Below are my attempts, the first based on an Edwin Cooper painting, the second based on a John Paul painting. (The mats are from Walmart ;-)
