Between Fall and Winter



Hi,
It is almost 2008 and I am looking forward to this year.
My last session of colored pencil classes with Ann Arbor Rec and Ed was rewarding. There were a lot of people who made great progress and really took to using colored pencils. The nice thing about this medium is that it is clean and not intimidating. I find that working on a piece in cp is very calming. Something about the process can put you in "the zone" of positive feelings and creativity.

I did this "fall pears" piece after the fall session and continued my obsession with borders. I had fun. The upcoming winter session of classes should be great. I hope to incorporate new projects and exercises to be done in class.

Welcome to my blog

Hi,
Welcome to my first blog entry. The Fall 2007 session of Colored Pencil Classes for Ann Arbor Rec and Ed is proving to be a productive session. I truly enjoy seeing all the talented people in the community explore colored pencil. It is more versitile than most people think. I also think that spending some time using colored pencil is akin to meditating. I find it healing and peaceful to work on cp art.
My colored pencil friends in the Washtenaw County area and I are preparing for our first group show, Getting Real. It will be a the Malletts Creek Library from Dec 15 - Jan 30. Our reception is free and open to the public, Sunday, Dec 16 from 3:30- 5:30 PM.
