Pastel Paintings

Lonnie wrote me such a beautiful letter and I want to publically thank her for her kind words.

"A little about me: Upon my father's passing, the family brought me over his art supplies, which he had boxed up for maybe more than 20 years, so I started to play around with the materials before researching just what was required to bring out the best in them.

I would like to comment, as prior to receiving your informative e-book I was unaware there was a special paper or preparations for pastels, and did my first pastels directly on watercolor paper. Thank you for all your time, effort, inspiration, and dedication that sparked my motivation."

For someone who is just beginning using pastels, these are really lovely.
