I was told by someone that one could be arrested for not using art materials. Not wanting to get sideways with the law, I broke out these cheap oil pastels. I also had a tablet of tinted pastel paper in 11x14 size. This is a first for me. I'm using pastels and this is the largest size I have ever worked. As I worked I wasn't sure about the subject. It is another view of Mt Shasta from my recent trip. The foreground is all greens and pretty dull when you get down to it. I commited to it so I decided to continue on. During the process I even broke a few of the sticks. I had no idea what they would do, or for that matter how to even use them. Guess I'll get a book and read about them. Anyway, for everyone's amusement. I present Alan's first ever pastel landscape. Ughhhh.
