Lexie's Embroidered Blouse - original oil pastel portrait painting

This portrait began with a drawing from life, then the model left and I had to rely on sketches and some photos, but photos are always too flat or something and I don't really like to use them.  But you do what you gotta do.  So here's the portrait - 14 x 11" on Pastelbord. 
I meant to have a photo of Wet Ones since I cannot function without them when doing oil pastel.  But now I'm all comfy in my chair and too lazy to get up and take a picture.  Maybe tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by!
