Thanks Sherri! Actually, I am enjoying using the pastels. I had never used them before. Getting messy is part of the fun!

One article I read said you should use blending sticks and not your fingers to blend the pastels on the paper. The book I am using says to use your fingers because the natural oils in your skin actually help to blend the pastels. I feel like getting dirty and using my fingers to blend helps me become "one" with the painting! Hilarious!

FYI - Aruba is one of Sheri's parakeets (she is my sister).
