"Wyoming Grey" Completed, and Exhibition News

Wyoming Grey
8" x 12"
Colored Pencil on Uart Sanded Pastel Paper

Each year the Colored Pencil Society of America invites a group of artists to donate a piece to their silent auction, "Small Works of Great Magnitude".  This year, Wyoming Grey will be among 36 small colored pencil works auctioned off during the convention week of the 19th Annual CPSA International Exhibition.  In addition, my piece Canadian Cowgirl has been accepted into the exhibition.  The show will take place from June 29 to July 31, 2011, at the Charles W. Eisemann Center in Richardson, Texas, near Dallas.  (I think I foresee a Dallas shopping excursion for more cowboy boots in my near future.)  More information, as well as the list of accepted artists, can be found at the CPSA website.

So now, it is back to the drawing board.  I have two or three potential ideas swirling around up there, and will probably take a couple of days deciding upon and working on the layout of my next project.  Though I would like to develop a portrait or figurative piece of my nineteen-year-old son, he is a rather uncooperative 'model'.  It may be necessary to resort to bribery.    : )   

Thanks for reading.

    Hmmmmm, Peter........I just caught myself 'air measuring' for that drawing! : )
    Incidentally, tried to leave a comment on your blog a couple evenings ago, but blogger has been giving me fits lately and it would not work for some reason. Basically wanted to say, "ditto what April and Colette said!"

  5. OMG Lynda.... I just love this!!! I can't wait to see it in real life. Love, love, love it!!!

  6. Thanks, Gemma........look forward to seeing you in Dallas!
