I Blog about creating Fine Art, using Colored Pencils and also Oil Paints. Working in the studio as well as "En Plein Air", (In the Open Air). Come in and join the fun!
My colored pencil work requires 20-25 layers of artist quality pencils. Trying to foster respect for artists who choose a nonstandard media is challenging. I hope this blog will show Colored Pencil deserves the respect from collectors and galleries as a fine art medium.
From January to February I had my first Students Show at my Crossroads Art Center Exhibit space. A
There can't be a colored pencil teacher who is any more proud of the work they have accomplished than I. Some are artists in other mediums, several have played with CP and all are fast becoming wonderful friends and lead heads.
Class and Me
Kathy Scott produced her tribute to Modigliani's "Woman with a Black Tie" for our Recreate A Master Class on Ampersand pastelboard.
Pauline Clay did a sunset scene in our landscape class on Uart paper as well as this lovely rose on Stonehenge paper.

A couple could not attend the reception and were sorely missed. And I thank all of you who participated in the show. I'm already thinking up plans for next year's show. So if you have been putting off taking classes, let me know and we will try to get you into the Spring session which is registering now or for Fall later in the year.
It took me a while to get these photos up and posted due to the charity event we at the Bon Air Artists Assoc. are producing in March. A Fine Art exhibit with local Richmond area artists raising funds for the World Pediatric Project - March 22 & 23rd. A 15 month project in which we hope to sell some great art and raise lots of money for WPP.
Here's to thinking a colorful spring gets here soon,
