"Holy Hell!" I love this TOO!
Fabulous Pamps! You got a way with them sticks!
[Love TeAnne, too] Can you put a bit of a kitty-cat tail reflecting in her glasses? TeAnne loves kitties, too.

I don't know beans about stuff but from observer I don't like the nose. That one nostril. I know it is from a different angle but just don't know what it is about that nostril.

Otherwise I like it. And like I said I don't know squat.

How many years have you been painting. I think you're awsome.

Also you'll have a good background for understanding this. The nursing home I interviewed with had 32 defiencies. #1 patient abuse on a scale of 1-4 they got 3's & 4's. I already knew when I went that I was not going to take anything there just had to see for myself. It was a good example of a place looking good to the untrained eye. While I was waiting for the interview I saw a door open with all their medical supplies. It was open to the hallway & this room was left open for anyone to enter into. Should have been a locked room.

well off to see what else I missed today.

Wonderful. Have to check out that project.
Anita. I am so proud that the nursing where I volunteer and where my husband was a patient. is deficiency free.

Pam, you have a wonderful way with colours!!!!!!! I think it is very good, only one thing bothers me and that is the stark white between her nose and uppeer lip. I know it's the sun but maybe a hint of and indication of the dint (what on earth is that indentation from nose to lip called????)

thanks for the comments...I also posted it at the ART CRITIQUES gallery where they (Jerry, Impulsive, etc) thought I should stop
as the folks in pastels do

I did a tiny bit more.....but I'm going to leave it;...at least till I learn more

Anita..I just started pastels this year

Thanks for running over there and looking!!!

Anita...don't compromise on Long Term Care. JoAnn ;)
