About 6 years ago I came across a box of oil pastels that I purchased from the estate of a Wilmington Delaware illustrator in the 1970s.  Out of curiosity more than inspiration I began painting with them.  For some reason I tried working on some failed clay prints lying around the studio and, as so often happens, ended up with a body of work that grew to over 30 pieces.  To my delight they were quite popular and most have been sold.  Yesterday I was moving some stuff about - something I tend to do a lot - and uncovered 4 of the few remaining pieces.  I'm fond of them and would like to share them with you.
