2012 - Montana Cowboy

This picture was quite the learning experience since it was the very first one I have ever done using oil pastels.  I ended up really enjoying the heavy crayon-like feel of the sticks and the textures that I found I could achieve. 

A very special thank you to Gene Gordner for giving me permission to draw his portrait.  This image has been very well received with lots of compliments.
