I recently bought some Pan Pastels http://www.panpastel.com/ and love them. I played a bit with them and my Twinkling H2O's - I printed out the clip art of the birds on 140 lb. water color paper and then had fun.
I am blessed to reside in Alabama about half of the year and in Panama City Beach, Florida, the other half. I enjoy time with my family and friends. TV-watching and reading and internet browsing are also important to me. I love creating and altered art and learning from my artist friends. Life is very good!
