Waiting for award winners to be announced...
My friend Betty Ann and I are looking closely at the way this pastel was framed. Carmela Martin used museum quality glass and there was absolutely no glare. Carmela used to be a watercolor student of mine and now she has sky-rocketed using dry pastels. I was disappointed she did not receive a award for this piece.
