  1. Hi,
    thanks for mentioning me in your blog.
    This blog is really interesting and I am impressed how many pastel artist world wide you have found.

  2. Hello Astrid - sorry I missed your comment at first as I hadn't checked the older posts. The roll of honour continues - each new artist may have links on their site - but I don't post sites where either the work or the web design is not of a reasonable standard. Keep in touch.
