Table for One Please

Oil Pastel on hardboard

So tonight I sat down at my table for a wonderful dining experience. On the menu was a feast for the eyes, including a massive spread of big buttery oil pastel sticks for me to munch on... my favorite. I grabbed them by the handfulls and inhaled their beautiful aroma. I almost began to chew on color number eleven, but managed to snap out of it just in time! Instead I put them to better use and produced a few more paintings. 

I am so in love with the texture they produce... the past couple days of painting have been rough ones for me. Was having trouble painting in general. It actually felt so forced. Instead of giving up though, I pushed through it. Now I have a few new oil pastels unlike any others I have done before... so I guess I had a break through.
