The wait begins....

Of course I mean my CPSA entries for the 19th annual International Exhibition
 in Dallas this year! My pieces were finished and uploaded to the CaFE' site yesterday.  *Whew* :D.
 (ok, so I only had to finish one, the other was an entry from last year) It always seems that the jury process takes so long. I'm thankful it's faster with the CaFE' process though. Still, it seems to drag on...

To those of you pushing the deadline, scrambling to get that piece finished,
 good luck to you!
I've been there, doing the same thing, a few times.

Kick up the music, put on the coffee and get those pencils sharpened!

YOU CAN DO IT!

Just a little portrait ...

"Vintage Beauty"

 
This is a litle 4.5" x 6.5" Prismacolor Pencil portrait done on Uart 600. The lovely model is my daughter (hey, after all those years raising them, I should be allowed, right?)  This is also the image we'll be working on in Memphis!

I picked up these vintage furs at an estate sale one day, with the intention of using them as props, eventually. When my daughter came to visit the same day, she put them on and I quickly grabbed some images. We were just goofing around. As it ended up, there are a couple more of those images you'll be seeing, they were so fun!

Enjoy!
