Each artist will have six pieces in the show. Over the years, I have worked in other mediums so for me, this is a mini-retrospective. Below are my paintings that will be exhibited and available for purchase.
|1999 - Worldly Goods, colored pencil on paper, 19 x 25 inches.|
Worldly Goods is in the style of my colored pencil work - sharp point, light touch, color lifted with reusable adhesive for added nuance. This drawing was featured in a step-by-step article for American Artist Magazine. I was working on it at the same time I was writing Colored Pencil Solution Book. When this drawing was complete I realized that in my confusion of shooting slides (remember slides?) for CPSB, I had failed to shoot slides of this painting for the step-by-step article. So, with this drawing as my reference, I created another quarter-size version of this painting and shot slides of that one for the article. That smaller version of Worldly Goods sold but I still have the original, larger version and am so happy to show it with this group.
|2001 - Falling In Love Again, colored pencil on paper, 25 x 18 inches|
Two years later, I created Falling In Love Again. Still working in that meticulous circular stroke that I love. I love to NOT see a pencil "stroke." The texture of the paper was critical to the result I wanted.
|2002 - Strawberry Reflections, watercolor with colored pencil, woven surface, 14 x 13 inches.|
|2004 - Love Life, colored pencil on paper, 14.5 x 14.5 inches|
|2014 - Found Memories, pastel, 12.5 x 11 inches|
|2014 - Bejeweled Woodland, 13 x 12.5 inches|
My sixth painting in our group show is from my 2014 "Minds' Eye" series. Paintings from memory. A woodland scene with small jewel-like reflections in the water. Click any image to enlarge. We hope you have a chance to see the show in person but it will also be online at the American Art Company website.
