My first Norah's faces and experiments with PanPastels

Hi everyone,
It's been a while since I posted anything, but it's only the lack of time that's keeping me away from the computer.
First, I want to thank you so much for all your lovely, warm comments, they are so precious to me! And second, I was asked by few of you why my new posts don't appear like updates on some of your blogs. To be honest, I don't have a clue, everything seems to work well here. If you know what could be the trick, please let me know and I'll try my best to fix it.
Now, like I told you, I started new classes with Sharon Tomlinson of http://allnorahsart.blogspot.com/ and I'm more than delighted! She is such a wonderful, talented artist, a great teacher and supportive friend! She shares LOTS of interesting techniques and the workshop is full of bonus lessons, so, if you are interested come and jump in the fun!
Here are my first two canvases (5"x5") that I worked in her class.




You can see some details here:


For the second canvas, I experimented with some PanPastels Artist Pastels, mixing them with acrylics, collage and stamps. I was delighted with the result, this is a FANTASTIC product, so easy and fun to work with!
Here is another project I started using them, this time on watercolor paper.

Hope you like them!:)
Thanks for your visit, have a great week,
Lots of love, Sanda xx

Sanda, so lovely to hear from you.
I totally understand why I don't see your posts now. I thought my blog thing was acting up. I am not sure why it happens. Wish I did. I could see you more.
Your paintings are totally beautiful. I haven't even started Sharon's style painting yet.
I think the doll thing kind of over took. Love the napkin thing and transfers. Her soft faces.
You have captured these so much.

Loads of love to you Sanda!

OMG, this is so beautiful, out of this world really! Good job! I don't see your update on my blog reading list either! I guess this is something to do with google!
For your question, dear Sanda, I use laser printer!

Take care and have a nice day!
Lily

Sanda,
Wow, These are truly stunning works.
Such beautiful faces with the butterflies.
I like your ladies, large shaped eyes... They look very elegant.
Sorry it has taken me a while to visit you lately. I am now just getting back on track and catching up with blog friends. I hope you are well. Have a lovely week.:)
