Hi everyone,

I just joined the site, and posted this image in the new users & portraiture sections. I was asked to show this in the pastels forum, so here it is. I look forward to meeting all you fellow pastelists!

Sundiver & Bev,
Thank you both for the nice compliments. I'm glad I joined this site, and look forward to seeing your works as well.

I just started a pastel of a little Native American girl that I will enter in an upcoming show. When I'm finished I will post the image (should be in a few days).

Thanks for the greetings,

Roni, Alan & Mikki,

Thanks so much for the nice comments, and for making me feel welcome here. I'll post something new in a few days, when I'm finished with my current project. That is, provided the lazy bug doesn't bite (which has been occuring frequently lately :o ). But anyways...

Talk to you soon,

Richard, welcome to the Forum!:) Don't know when (or if) I've seen a portrait so lively and so complete, achieved with such simple means. Do show us more. I'm in awe.

Thank you Agnes, Dark Shades, EJ, Doe, Redsy. BT, & Mo (hope I didn't leave anyone out). I really didn't think I'd get so many kind responses! I will have to try the critiques forum soon, also.

Well, gotta go paint now. Thanks everyone, for welcoming me to your community.
