CPSA Best of Show and Cippy Award


Hello All,

Well, I just got home from the Colored Pencil Society of America's 25th Annual Exhibition and was blown away to find out that my artwork, "BFFs - Save the Elephants" was awarded the Best of Show and Cippy award.

This award has fulfilled a long-time dream and sought-after goal of mine.  While on the stage and receiving the award, I went numb, started crying and just kept thinking...please... just point me in the direction I am supposed to go.  Needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled!!!

The one thing I would like to say to all of you is to, keep trying, keep your goals in mind and keep working at it.

Don't forget to keep scribbling!!
