  10. Hi Hilda,
    Thanks for visiting and for your encouraging comments.:-) It gave me a chance to visit your blog. Scrolling down through your body of work, there are many pieces to comment on, but I particularly like Your Wedding Day, Dance Rehearsal, and Plucked from the Tree of Life. Great work, well done!

  18. Hi Hilda.
    This is my favourite out of your portraits. You certainly are a wonderful Portraite Artist Hilda. I only tried pastels for a week a number of years ago. I was on a weeks Art course and the Teacher got us to use Sandpaper. My Fingers bled. I gave them up after that. but I must try them again with normal paper. All the best Hilda.
    Vic.

  19. Thank you for that nice comment Victor. 42 years ago they used photo paper on our wedding photos that apparently was not good so all our pictures are literally fading...so before we disappear totally, I painted myself and my husband. As far as the sandpaper you used...ouch! I used pastelbord for this painting but normally Canson 431
