Sleigh Bells in Florida?

We arrived in Florida last week and I had this pastel painting I did last year hanging on my bedroom wall.  I did this in Florence's class and am looking to getting started with her this year.  I believe I captured the shininess of the bells and the texture of the leather strap.  Here's a close-up.
Considering I had never worked with soft pastels before, I think I did ok. 
I think I'll bounce back and forth with both oil and pastel for a while.  I do need new photographs and may try my hand at plein aire?
