CPSA 18th Annual International Exhibit

For a few years now, I have submitted entries to the Colored Pencil Society of America's annual international exhibit, but had never had one of my pieces chosen. I just found out that "Waiting" (a portrait of my grandson, Ethan) has been accepted for this year's show! It will be re-framed with plexiglass for safe shipping, and sent off to Los Gatos, California in July.

Title for an Apple

Here is a little something I'm working on. At just five by seven inches, it really is a little something! I was going to call this "Apple and Old Maids", because of the group of tiny, shriveled, undeveloped fruits on the same stem as this beautifully hefty one. We call unpopped popcorn kernels 'old maids', and that's what these reminded me of. Then I started to think about the term, and I just don't like it!

So, what else could I call it? Survival of the Fittest? Sole Survivor? Over and Under Achievers? Any ideas?

Still Point Art Gallery Exhibition

Three of my colored pencil pieces are currently on display in Still Point Art Gallery's current show, "Still Point II". I am honored to also have been selected as an 'Artist of Distinction' by the gallery, which will allow me to show more of my work there in 2011. The gallery's blog has articles on each of the chosen artists here. I invite you to take a look!
