This is a picture of my new oil pastels by Portfolio. They go on like butter - so smooth and creamy. And just yummy to work with! They can be found at Staples and don't cost very much. Love them! The picture above them is a page from a book I did at a workshop. The workshop was in Wisconsin, at Valley Ridge Art Studio, and was taught by Lynne Perrella. That is where I learned about the oil pastels.
