  2. Sonia this is really good. Way to go. I feel like I could reach out and take a sip of it. How do you get such a nice signature on your pieces???

  3. Thank you so much, Lori! Honestly, I am still learning to use soft pastels and still waiting for my first pastel pencils´ set to arrive (I ordered them through internet)... For the signature, I just use an ordinary fine tip black marker.
