Gail's Job - original oil pastel figurative painting

This little picture, about 9 1/2 x 5", was actually part of a larger experiment, with a couple sitting at the table behind her.  But they just didn't belong, so I removed them.  The paper I used is Sennelier Carte d'Art, which I formerly didn't like because of the white that shows through.  I've found, though, that it's just one of the charms of oil pastel and using this paper gives a looser appearance that I favor.   Still, even though I like the paper a lot, I do a lot of blending with my fingers so that there are some fairly smooth areas.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
