Pastels - First Attempt

This is my first attempt at using pastels. I learned a lot while doing it and hope that the next picture turns out better.
It's really Paul's fault that I'm doing this. He came home from a garage sale with a set of 36 pastels that had hardly been used. My friend Adrienne, who has been taking classes in this media, took me along with her and this is the result.
Working on a new piece now. I'll post it when I'm done.

Three Shops

I now have three shops on Etsy.

My original shop, MarthaHorman, still has some jewelry but, little by little, I'm moving it to my new jewelry shop. Martha Horman will feature my paintings, both oil and watercolor, my photographs and, for the benefit of the Long Island Craft Guild, the prints of the late Jessie Fuchs.

My second shop, AuntMartha, features vintage goods and supplies. Since I am an Aunt Martha, I felt that this was a good name because it feels old fashion even though I'm not. (At least, I don't think so.)

My third shop is CabArray. It features my jewelry and I hope to add glass and hand cut stone cabochons in the future.

Do stop by and take a look around. The links to my shops are in the links column to the right.
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
