Thank you CPSA Local Chapter 104

Thank you to Local Chapter 104 of the Colored Pencil Society Of America for inviting me as their guest speaker last Thursday September 16th at the BBAC in Bloomfield, Michigan. I had a great time and was truly inspired by their members and their high caliber of work. I was able to present awards to the chosen winners from the Colored Pencil Plus exhibit that I Judged the previous month. (Thanks for waiting!)

I was invited to lead a critique of several members work and thoroughly enjoyed our open discussion and exchange of comments and helpful hints.

Thank you all for your kind words and hospitality. It was an honor to meet and talk with all of you and be received so warmly.

Orchid Painting up for Auction

I don't often put original paintings up for auction on eBay but I thought "what the heck" I'll try it. This painting which is simply titled "Pink Cattleya Orchids" was one of my very first paintings from 2001. It is on a 12 x 24 inch canvas and will need a frame. I don't always display it with my current work as it is painted in a more traditional style with a dark background.

If you look on my website you will see that it is priced at $400.00. I have decided to move it out of my studio and into someones home. I have put it on the eBay auction block with a starting price of $99.00 with a reserve of $150.00. If interested just follow this link to my eBay auction page to see the details and place your bid. Don't wait too long!
