Ray,Colored Pencil,14.5x12 I made it in this year!!

CPSA is the Colored Pencil Society of America. All work submitted must be 100% colored pencil. “Ray at the Window” was done with Prismacolor pencil on Ersta sandpaper.

I am so not a fan of flying. But I’m giving great thought to going out to Seattle this year to see this exhibit in person.

Michigan Fine Arts Competition

Raindrops, Colored Pencil, Dee Overly

27th Annual Michigan Fine Arts Competition

Birmingham, MI 48009
(248) 644-0866
March 14 – April 11, 2008
Gallery Hours:
Mon-Thur 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Fri-Sat 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

“Raindrops” made it into the competition this year. This is my miles piece for 2008 which means I enter it into as many shows as possible and try to get as many miles out of it as possible. This is it’s forth exhibit.

Rarely do I have a piece of artwork that I absolutely can not part with, and “Raindrops” may be one of those pieces. Everything just seemed to work correctly on this colored pencil piece. I used Primsacolor pencils on Stonehenge paper. There are several layers of color built and the finished piece is sprayed with a UV fixative.

Have a grand day!

The Exhibit Opening Reception

Thanks to all of you who made it out for the opening reception of Landscape Bodyscape. It was indeed a festive night. Food, drink, music, friends and art all in the same place, can life get any better than that! The gallery tallied 110 visitors for the evening.

The next day was pretty much a lost cause though, I was a vegetable. Think I spent the day watching golf and napping, emphasis on the napping part.

As you can see by the pictures, this gallery doesn’t have the plain white walls that most galleries use, but it works. In some cases, the artwork blends and flows with the walls, other times the wall color causes the art to pop right out. So, if you have a lot of art work that you want to showcase in your home, don’t believe that you need to restrict yourself to just light colored walls.
The exhibit is up through the 29th of September for those of you in the Ypsilanti area who would still like to stop in and look around.Thanks for reading and have a grand day!
