                                           "In Bloom"
I've been out of town painting with friends on Lake Buchanan.  What fun - a girls slumber party and paint out all at the same time.  This is a pastel on velour paper.  It's the first time I've painted on this surface and it is so luxurious.  It's a challenge because you can't erase anything once you've touched the pastel to the surface, but the reward is how the pastels glow on the surface.  Hope y'all like it.

That is ethereal and lovely, Vicki. I used to work in pastels on velour years and years ago; after seeing yours, I may have to pick it back up again.
