 :wave:   Here I am....  :eyesclosed:   FINALLY!  I think it is done.  :pray:      :eek:    No this is it.... really, maybe?   :confused:    Let me know what you think.  I am going to enter it in a pastel competition so any input will be great.
Cheers, Val

 :heeha: Ta much Marylou. It has been such a relief to finally sit back and say... done! So many times wanted to pack it in but there are two voices that keep popping into mind and keep me pushing on. Mr. D and Nolan are forever ingrained in both my conscious and subconscious, poor darlings are actually screaming to get out!!!   >:D    :2funny:
Thank you once again for forever being so supportive and encouraging to me. Love you to bits!  :-*
Cheers, Val

Thanks so much Belma. It really feels so thrilling to finally get done and move on to the next. Loved looking in your gallery!  :heeha:   Especially taken with you ballerina! Fantastic background and well detailed dancer. Stunning and earns a big Banner Job from me.  O0    :congrats:
Cheers, Val

 :blush: Ta ever so much Nolan, I shall repost when I get a better photo. When the light is just right some of the petals just seem to light up and glow! I am more determined than ever to focus forward and achieve higher levels and improve my abilities. Could never have come this far from my humble beginnings as the ¨Cauliflower Queen¨ without your and Dennis´ constant encouragement.  :hug:       :yippee:
Cheers, Val

Thanks Zayn. I honestly began to wonder if it would ever be done!    :crazy2:    I think I´m going to stick with smaller ones for a while. With all the frames I´ve managed to salvage this past year I haven´t got one that will house this painting half decently!  :pullhair:   So it will go off to a framer´s shortly. I have two in reasonable distance so will go chat and see who does pastels. There was only one other pastelist I have found since I arrived here. I´m sure there must be others hiding in the woodwork!  ;D
Cheers, Val
