They're both incredible! Congratulations! You make pastels look so easy, with all those clean crisp details, but I know for a fact it's very difficult. That's why I stick to my pencils, no matter how tempted I am to try those lovely rich pastels like you! I can't wait to see the issue with your work in it!

Thank you so much, Katherine! Unfortunately, The Artist's Magazine only lists the names of the finalists, and the pictures of the paintings.
