The Flute Player - original oil pastel portrait painting

This little painting (5 x 7" on Pastelbord) has been fraught with problems - not the least of which is depicting the instrument and the musician.  I love flute music and plan to do more flute players - flutist, flautist - because they are a challenge.  The green on the right is a little more yellowish than in reality, so I will probably repost the photo, but not now, since it's so late.   Stay tuned for the sgrafitto I'm working on.  Very time-consuming, but fun.  Thanks for stopping by!
