The Queen of Luxury - 18" x 24" soft pastel on premium recycled paper

The Queen of Luxury 2 - 18" x 24" soft pastel on premium recycled paper

I created these many years ago and around the same time...Queen of Luxury 2 was later submitted in 2015 for the 5th Aeclectic Tarot Forum's Collaboration deck. 

It was while drawing these two pieces that I discovered how much I enjoyed using soft pastels. As I said in another post, the freedom I experience when using this particular medium is unlike anything else.

I named her the Queen of Luxury because she IS luxurious and...sensual. Think about what it means to be sensual...not sexual...but sensual. There's a big difference.
