UKCPS


I received some great news yesterday. My piece, Night's Agents, won the President's Award (3rd Place) in the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society Annual Exhibition 2008.
You can view the entire show on their website: http://www.ukcps.co.uk/2008Exhibition.html
& Katherine Tyrrell has a great post about the exhibit on her blog Making a Mark.
If you remember, this piece has a sister called Light Vanity, which had the honor of being accepted in the Catharine Lorillard Show in NYC in 2007. Light Vanity is now on display at Chasen Galleries.
I've started a new piece that I was going to photograph and post last week, but I couldn't find my camera. I did find it now, but the piece is ALMOST finished, so I might as well wait and post it tomorrow.

Congratulations Nicole. I also loved the "Rob" entry. I have been doing nothing but colored pencil since our cruise last April and am having the best time. Since 1st laying pencil to paper (or pastel board) on that cruise I have done three portraits and my "apples in a bowl" won an Award of Merit this week at the SC State Fair Fine Art Exhibition. Thanks for being such a great teacher and a lovely person as well. Say hi to your husband for me.
