Medium: Oil Pastel

I often strive for some form of realism in my painting but I love to do these pictures where I just paint what I feel. Expressionism I guess. The use of oil pastel is like those crayons of the five year old girl. Pressing and rubbing and blending - it really is so satisfying.
French impressionist, Paul Gauguin said not to assign a fixed and unchangeable colour to every object. Use your imagination. I have always loved Dr.Seuss's unique and quirky imagination - he would say that he looked at life through the wrong end of the telescope and that fantasy is a necessary ingredient of living.
