Morning Preyer Accepted at CPSA International

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 24, 2013 by Lisa Mills

I’m so pleased to announce that Morning Preyer has been accepted into the CPSA 21st International Exhibition this summer in Brea.  It was one of 127 entries accepted of over 600 entered.  While I’m excited for this piece to be accepted, I’m disappointed that Reflections on Cool Jazz was not.  I can still enter it again next year, and plan to do so.  This is the second time my work has been accepted in the international show and if I’m accepted a third time, I will receive signature status in CPSA.  The show this year is in Brea California the last week of July.  I’ll be attending the show and look forward to seeing the exhibition in person.

Finally, I can post a picture of the latest artwork – still untitled at this point.  This piece will be entered in the Colored Pencil Society of America 21st Annual International Exhibition, to be held in Brea, California July, 2013.  If accepted, it would be my second accepted entry in this prestigious exhibition.  I truly lost count of the hours it took to complete this piece.  Needless to say, it was a lot!  Like the Fender guitar piece I completed earlier this year, this painting was entirely colored pencil done on Art Spectrum Colorfix Suede paper.  I love this paper – it really works well with colored pencils and produces a fabulous effect when creating reflective surfaces.  Anyway, here’s the finished piece…more updates to come on the title and progress in the judging process which takes place next spring.
