Pink - original oil pastel portrait

For this piece, I used a 7 x 5" art panel that is NOT specifically for pastels and it doesn't compare to say, Pastelbord or Colourfix paper.  I don't mean it was a nightmare to work on, but it didn't grab and hold the oil pastel,  either.  It just reminds me how wonderful those products are!  The lesson here:  Always go for the supplies meant to work with oil pastels.  Thanks for looking!
