Day 20 - 30 in 30 January Challenge

For Day 20 I chose a photo of a set up I did with colored pencils in mind.  However, I decided to try a portion of the set up using pastels on gray Pastelmat.  I liking it quite a bit.  I'm calling it "Glitz" since gold cups and strawberries seem kind of glitzy to me.  It is 7 x 5 inches.
