I'm a little late in posting photos of my 2nd Annual Student show at Crossroads Art Center & Gallery on Jan. 16th - Feb. 17th, in my exhibit space. We had a great turn out and lots of beautiful art. Unfortunately I don't have a group picture of all those who are showing their work but I am so very proud of all of my Students. they work very hard and I believe enjoy the process of Colored Pencil Painting. This is by no means all of them but a short view of the show. If your in Richmond go by Crossroads Art Center & Gallery before Feb. 17th to see the work for yourself!
The infamous "Bob" with his portrait by his lovely wife, Toni Brown. Dressed as he was in his portrait. This was her first portrait accomplished in my class. And it won an award in her local Fredricksburg Show. Great Job!
Jean Dickson with her first Rose accomplished in our Beginner's class this spring. And she has moved on to more lovely work since. A decorative Painter Jean has many talents.
Barbara Chadwick with her "Study in Red" her first piece accomplished in class and "Pumpkin" drawn in class and from life. Barbara is a botanical artist who usually works in watercolor and enjoys working from life in that tradition.
Pauline and "Clyde" in front of her first portrait of her handsome hubby. Pauline's work in the show also included her piece from our shiny objects class, Still Life With Strawberries.
Additional students in my show with work are Jan Ozolek and her "South African Lilac Breasted Roller"-Bird Portrait seen to the left of Pauline in this picture. And Brian Austin's lovely landscape view "Sister Bay Beauties" with Echinacea also in this view.
Rebecca Spangler's two landscapes: "Savannah Street Scene" and "Mabry Mill" are also part of the exhibit. (pictures coming) And Barbara George's "Ireland Green" butterfly-botanical piece.
Kathy Scott's "Provincial Cafe" is a lovely street scene from one of her many European vacations.
So as you can see my students have worked hard and deserve to have their paintings shown both here and on my exhibit walls at Crossroads Art Center and Gallery, Richmond, VA
They are already hard at work on new pieces in 2015 and I'm sure the show will grow and gain more interest for colored pencil painting! I know my pride in showing their work keeps me teaching and encouraging new people to pick up this media.
