Ready for action - SOLD

Ran across an old box of pastels in my studio. The colours were bright, interesting and it was kind of thrilling! I know that sounds dweebish to many but I think it's one of the perks of the job (smile, contented sigh). 
Note: this painting had been called: Creamy oil pastels. Could not think of an interesting title so I went for the obvious. I asked for snappier title suggestions and THANK YOU to Jill who came up with "Ready for Action" : )
6" x 6" / oil on panel / $75

Any post that mentions the word "dweebish" gets my vote... I do love the brilliant colors and shadows here though, seriously.
