Petit Déjeuner, click to bid

Just found out that my class in France is full! 10 students. Wow. Getting excited now.

Also just found out that my pastel of my grandson Victor and his dog Pepper won Best of Show at the International Association of Pastel Societies Online Exhibition. A huge honor. And a very nice check accompanies it. So wonderful at this time of year. Thank you, IAPS.

I'm on my way to Asheville, NC, today to visit old friends for the weekend. Looking forward to seeing Asheville at Christmas time, hoping my car is dependable and that bad weather doesn't surprise me.

"Petit Déjeuner" is a 7x5 pastel up for auction. Click on the title above to be taken to the auction site. Bidding begins at $100.


  1. Margaret, sounds like a really good time talking! I believe exactly as you said, and I can't wait until times just like you describe to talk all things art! I still have your painting and need to get it to you. Congratulations on the 1st Place for IAPS Show!

  2. Wow, what great news! Congratulations, Margaret!!! You so deserve the recognition you're receiving :-) Have fun in Asheville.

  3. My friend, Jane and I (both of us coming to France to study with you next June) freaked out and did a happy dance when you saw that your painting took first place in the IAPS exhibition! Not only because it's you but because we have both just ADORED that particular painting!! Congrats! Those judges know a good thing when they see it! So well deserved!

    Does this mean that the cost of your France workshop will go up now ???? ;-)
