Very beautiful oil pastel. I like the composition and perception of this flower, Blithe.

Put me in the face-seeing category. Seems to be an elderly man with spindly legs walking bent over one arm on his tired old back and the other holding a cane. Or else it's a painting of a flower of some sort.
Good work on this image. Wonderful colours and textures.

Beautiful oil pastel. Well created. Great textures and well put together. I see a mask but then i seem to see more in a painting than most people.

Vic and Wendell, well and everyone else. merci pour votre les belles paroles.

in context, for this drawing, i had been working on sketching portraits.. when i was drawing the flower i was thinking of how i drew ears, etc, to draw the petals.. i believe this is why this flower has so many images in it.
