Stokes of Genius 6 is publishing my "Harley's Davidson"
Harley's Davidson 16 X 16 Colored Pencil on Ampersand Pastelboard
Out of 1500 entries, 124 artists have been chosen for North Light Books’ 2013 drawing competition Strokes of Genius 6: Value | Lights & Darks! Congratulations to the all the winners. I am extremely excited about my own acceptance for the piece above. I have admired this book in Barnes & Nobles and one day hoped to be one of the published artists to be included in a volume of it. There are several CPSA member's in the book also, like Shawn Falchetti (Cascade). Tanja Gant (Waiting; Speak No Evil), Linda Lucas Hardy (Her Eyes So Blue; Repose), and Elizabeth A Patterson (Tomato Bullseye) to name a few. All with admirable work.
This piece is just back from the CPSA (Colored Pencil Society of America) convention and currently available for sale. I wanted to thank all the volunteers of the CA chapters of CPSA for yet another wonderful convention. When your piece arrives so quickly after the exhibit, safe and sound you have to think again about how much work it takes from the national board and local chapters to pull off another successful convention and exhibit.
