I jContemplation-old man-web_03.02.16ust completed this new pastel portrait “Contemplation”. It is part of a series I am working on having to do with contemplation in its various forms. Is he thinking about his youth? Is he thinking about a lost love? Or just contemplating the beauty of the rose? This is a 14×18 pastel painting on Sennelier La Carte Pastel Card.
