Playing with pastels

Going to have to start this post with a WOW!! Wow, because I’ve only gone and noticed that I now have more than 1000 followers on my blog, 1002 to be exact, and to say I’m blown away with this is an understatement. I never dreamed my little blog would ever attract this many. So, letting this sink in, there are 1002 people out there that like my work, and blog, enough to want to come back and see more - for an artist who often struggles with her confidence, that means a LOT. So a huge thank you for all your support and feedback, it really is much appreciated.

As the title of my post says I've been playing with pastels - and thoroughly enjoyed it - but have had to remove the image so nothing to look at, sorry.

Something in coloured pencil next up on the drawing board but enjoyed smooshing pastel about with my latest piece that I've a feeling they'll be making an appearance more often in my drawings.

This portrait is fan-FREAK-in'-TAS-tic! I have been swamped lately so I haven't been stopping by but hot doggedy, did I ever get rewarded for this visit. Wowzer!
