I just was notified yesterday that my colored pencil painting, "Pepper, Pot & Red Onions" won a Merit Award at the LAC Containers Exhibit. I was very pleased as it's been a long time since I have exhibited anything or won an award. Maybe things are looking up?
Maybe I'm not being fair to myself...I really haven't been focusing on exhibits for awhile. I have been focused on learning about Light and Shadow painting from my pastel instructor, Deb Bays.
This piece was the first one that I tried applying the concepts to colored pencil painting. The juror said she loved the darks and the rich color. So I must be learning something!!
