Lipstick art, or not

Worked and completed second 11 by 14 image. Have not varnished either that is "done" - taking it slow since these are for my portfolio to show to NY galleries. Extra pressure, pressure for the first time actually.

Could have started another one, but did not want to tempt acrylic fate.

Did not fall to the seduction of my metallic oil pastels - such immediate gratification, then so ephemeral (easily disturbed or ruined by touch - like harder lipstick).

I will start third image soon - old habit tells me to work on an 8 by 10, but needs to be larger.

Wish I owned camera good enough to photograph finished paintings. Someday. Too many other commitments.

This is the unpainted image.
