I have always wanted to try pastels.  Always.  I love the way they look, what you can do with them, the way they make you feel.  But they are also expensive, and I have enough stuff in my studio-and then, and then, my dear friend gave me a huge lot of them-all the colors you could imagine.  I brought that big heavy bag up the stairs and took out each tray like it was a piece of gold and just feasted my eyes.  But today I took one in my hand, and it was love, it was a fairy tale, things flowed and blended and came together like magic.  

What a dream, and how grateful I am that J decided to clean out her studio and gift me with all sorts of treasures.  Can't wait to get to work tomorrow...
