Colored Pencil News

I am much happier than I look in this self portrait... I recently found out that I am now a Signature Member of the Colored Pencil Society of America, as I have been accepted into the annual exhibition for the past three years. CPSA is a wonderful organization with a plethora of information for colored pencil artists, and I have found the members to be very encouraging and supportive.

Also, Reticent, shown above, has been accepted into this year's Art Kudos International Juried Art Competition and Exhibition. The entire exhibition is available at, and my piece can be viewed on this page.

Finally, my first open studio event this past Saturday was a great success - I was thrilled to have people view my art in person, two pieces were sold, and I am excited about upcoming commissions. Future open studio events will be announced in my e-mail newsletter.

The Colored Pencil Society of America's 18th Annual International Exhibition Award Winners have been posted, and I am thrilled to announced that my piece Quiet Moment has received an Award for Excellence! I wish I could have attended the convention this year in Los Gatos, CA, but I hope to be able to attend next year's in Dallas...
