Pastel Painting on 23 x 18 paper.

BE BOLD!  This is a Hogue frame and was the last pastel painting I did. I enjoyed working with pastels but became concerned that the dust created by this medium was hazardous to my health; that it could cause pneumoconiosis or Black Lung Disease. Of course, pastel dust may be prettier than coal dust, but the result could be the same. I do not have a doctor's opinion on this, however.
