I have not posted pastel work lately as the day job has been overwhelming. And after the classic Pontiac in pastel, now am trying one in acrylic.

BUT, was tickled and honored to receive an Honorable Mention in the juried Southeastern Pastel Society show in Atlanta. Had two works accepted. Just wanted to share the news.

Here is the honorable mention one - you'll recognize this one. The other was the eggbeater (Egg White) you may remember.

Congratulations and hugs Johnnie.Not a bit surprised that this work was honored, but I'm with Deborah, if this is hm I want to see the blue ribbon winner because when you did this I pegged it as blue ribbon stock. It is such super piece.
