Daily Painting 3/26/19

This self-portrait is in pastel...but some people consider pastel a painting medium, even though it is dry, not wet.  So I'm treating it as my daily painting for today.  The paper has  acrylic pastel ground and random color blotches (from several years ago).  The studio lamp cast a warm glow from the left, while the open door let in a cooler, bluish light from the right.  It turned out way better than yesterday's landscape.
