Working on new and unusual surfaces

A while back I found some cork paper at the artist supply store and thought it would be an interesting ground for pastels. Initially I had considered some primitive equine images, as if they were rendered on leather or stone . . . but during a few tests of the medium on the surface, decided to do a landscape vignette, allowing some of the surface to show under the glow of pastels pigment. And this is the first of four I will be doing:Bodie Island Light
