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.

Exciting!

Exciting indeed! Congratulations!!! Woo-hoo! This piece is wonderful - the expression you have captured and the title. Love the skin tones, not to mention the detail in his clothing! A well deserved acceptance. :-)

Debbi, thank you so much! I would love to go, and even more so if I had you as a traveling companion, but I don't know if I can afford it... definitely giving it some thought!
