I recently entered the ACPN – Australian Coloured Pencils Network Online Exhibition 2014 with my landscape ‘Death of a Gum Tree’. The artworks that were to be my competition, wow incredible! Beautifully rendered, breathtaking pieces of coloured pencil art with a great variety of subjects. Of course it would be wonderful to win the art supplies that was to be the prize but of course I also needed to realistic.
Then I discovered with shock that I was announced the winner of the Just Pencils category! There was also a Mixed Media category and Peoples Choice award.
I was absolutely thrilled! To be awarded the winner by my peers made me feel both humbled and very proud. Working for hours and hours, more than I could count and then to be rewarded with such positive feedback, makes it all so worthwhile.
Once I finish off a couple of commissions that I’m currently working on, I will be on to my next project involving a pebbles and water combination. I can’t wait!
