New PanPastels mixed media and some good news

Hi everyone,
I know I didn't post for a while, but I was very, very busy lately.
First, I would like to share with you my new painting called "Always find hope". It's an 8"x 8"x 1,5" canvas and I used PanPastels ( definitely my favorite media lately), Folk Art and Golden acrylics, inks, watersoluble 8B sketching pencil, white gel pen, stencils and dark charcoal pencil.
You can see details here:

I am afraid I caught the 'silver making and beading' bug!!! LOLOL
I started working with Art Silver Clay and I am totally HOOKED!
I made this necklace and earrings as a gift for one of my niece's Confirmation. I have used Art Silver clay, an image of one of my paintings, resin, rose quartz, peridot chips, Swarovski crystals, lampwork beads, silver wires and silver chain. Hope you'll like them.

And now, I would like to share with you some good news! A while ago I received an email from Bernadette Ward ( she and her husband are the manufacturers of PanPastels Colors) asking me if I would like to share some of my PanPastels mixed media paintings on their Facebook page and on their website gallery. You can't imagine my surprise and delight! :)  So, you can follow me on Facebook too from now on!

Thanks for your visit and all your wonderful, supportive comments!

Have a lovely weekend,
Lots of love,
Sanda xx

Hi Sanda,

No idea why none of your amazing work ever shows up on my reading list. Guess I'll just have to keep an eye out myself. I really love your new painting - it draws me in and my eye wanders pleasantly from detail to detail. You're seriously talented! The necklace is also out of this world. So original - totally unbeatable.

She is wonderful. Don't you just love Art Clay Silver? I wish you lived closer...we would have so much fun playing. :) Thanks for visiting my site, and yes it's okay to post about Satori. I think her mom was concerned about things arriving after they had left the hospital, since they live in another state. Thank you so much.
