Next week, my colored pencil drawing “Waiting for His Kiss” will be shipped to Texas for the Colored Pencil Society of America’s 19th annual International Exhibition. I am very excited. This was my first year joining the CPSA. I was first attracted by their guide that lists the most lightfast colored pencils and their work to bring more recognition to the medium. What made me really want to join is the ridiculous quality of the work of its members. Colored pencil is not often thought of as a high art medium, but the results you can achieve with them are amazing. It is an honor to be accepted in to the Exhibition, and I look forward to seeing the award winners!
