My first post!

Last week my husband and I attended the 16th Annual CPSA International Exhibition in Seattle, Washington. It was a great trip, although I froze all week, it felt really good to get out of the heat! I loved seeing all my art friends, and meeting new ones but I really missed the ones that weren't there.

You know who you are!

This year my colored pencil piece "Chaps & Chevy's" was accepted into the show, earning me my my CPSA Signature Status award, a personal goal I can check off my list. I guess it's time to check the list again.

I was also asked to donate a piece of artwork for the silent auction at the convention. I donated "Workin' the Strawberry Roan" which was purchased by Shelly Minnis, who is a Prismacolor rep. Very cool because that piece is 100% prismacolor! ;)

I missed seeing you, too! Wow. A post. An actual post. Big step. I'm excited to see the direction this goes.

How did I miss this? I just found your blog! Were you keeping it a secret? I will definitely check in regularly for updates!

Congrats on your new status! Miss CPSA! Yay!
