butterflies and roses

I am honored to have been asked by Ann Kullberg to jury her annual online members colored pencil show. Please take a looksee at it on her site:


It was REALLY hard to pick winners!!



I thought my vase was way too big for the next still-life I am doing so I played a bit in photoshop. Of course I'll fix things when I draw it, but above are the two reference photos to compare. I plan on starting it tonight as I just got a bunch of my beloved Fisher 400 paper mounted to some gatorboard from Creative Encounters (my favorite frame shop). 

Anyway I can't wait to start - it will be 8 x 10" only, so it will be a sweet little piece, I hope.

Congratulations Nicole. I would think it would be very hard to pick winners from the beautiful works. I popped in early this morning to look at all the entries.
I would love to have entered...I don't feel my CP work is up to the standard yet but I am working hard to get there.

Best Wishes with the show.

It might be difficult but you have the cridentials to do it.

I wouldn't want to be in your shoes. Especially when they all deserve medals.
