Lily's Curls - original oil pastel portrait ACEO, artist card

I used some fluorescent oil pastels in this ACEO.  They can be found in the Sakura Cray-Pas Specialist line and they are very good.  Sennelier used to make them and I had a few, but the only place I can find them now is at Judsons Plein Air Art Outfitters and even there, they're on clearance.  Mungyo has some of the fluorescents, which I may try, and although I didn't enjoy working with Mungyo's regular oil pastels, their fluorescents may work for me.  This artists' card is, of course, 3.5 x 2.5" and the support is by Colourfix - the gritty kind that really grabs and holds the oil pastel.  Thanks so much for looking!
