Finished The Beagle - 10" x 13" Pastel on Paper.  I am very happy with him or her. Worth framing. Liked working with pastels and will try using them to make Christmas cards with a pastel painting of My Josie.

Thanks Wise. Me too. The teacher wasn't very happy with me. Some teachers just love to work on your work - they let you get the bones down and then they come in and make it theirs! She was about to do do exactly that before I said "please don't" as politely as possible. Once someone touches my work I may as well start over [although a lot of students love it and take home what they consider to be "their" painting]. It is no longer my work. She managed to make nearly everyones painting hers and I know some people were hurt by this. She critiqued [as she worked on their work] everyone in the class except me!!! I didn't need her critique as I know this is a good painting. If she had "critiqued" it both the eyes would have been the same colour and for me it wouldn't have worked!
Now to see if I can do something like it for my Josie....
take care,
