Beautiful Robert. I so admire anyone who can make oil pastels behave and you sure can.

Great painting Robert. I have a set of OPs at home I have never used. If I could get results like this I would be happy.

Really interesting to see the development of your work. I have used oil pastels before but only with mixed media. I like it.

Oh Robert this is wonderful - such lovely soft strokes for the sky and bg. creating a dream-like quality for the buldings. Great Oil Pastel work!
