Tea & Sympathy

Tea & Sympathy (8" x 14") Colored Pencil on Rust Colorfix (Framed 16" x 20")

One of my favorite pieces as it holds special meaning for me. This piece was also accepted into the 14th International CPSA Exhibit in Albuquerque, NM.

It did not start with an underpainting....I started with the background to see how light I could get the value. The little black teapot was next, so now I had one of my lightest lights and my darkest value. Everything else was relative to those two values.

Well, Hello Fan in Omaha (Baby Sister)....you figured out how to post!

And the special meaning was April 18, 2005 and all the support my family and friends gave to me...
Love you!
