CPSA Conference

I got back yesterday from the Colored Pencil Society of America's Annual Conference. This year it was in Atlanta, and CPSA celebrated 25 years! Included in our bag of goodies was even a special set of Derwent Coloursoft Pencils selected specifically to commemorate the 25th anniversary. CPSA is largely responsible for the lightfastness rules and guidelines used by colored pencil manufacturers today. This ensures that the products we use are of consistent quality and that the art we create is archival, similar to the standards of oil and acrylic paints. I had no idea! I also learned some neat little tips and tricks that I can't wait to share with my colored pencil classes.

"Contemplation" is on display as part of the CPSA Annual Exhibition. The show is at Oglethorpe University Museum of Art though August 23rd. So if you happen to be in Atlanta, go see the show. The work is amazing!

First Place!

I’m so happy to announce that “Timeless Memories” received First Place in Dry Media at the Gadsden Art Association's 57th Annual Juried Show. The artists’ reception was on Sunday, July 12th. It is always a very nice reception. And the show this year is amazing – so many beautiful pieces. If you have never been to the Gadsden Museum of Art, take the trip. It is very nice. The show ends August 22nd.

“Timeless Memories” was created with Prismacolor Premier colored pencils on Strathmore bristol vellum. I took the reference photo at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania a few summers ago.
