I'm back, with some changes for the new year and more drawings

The past month has been busy for me, with Christmas, other personal activities and drawing. I resigned from VIVA Gallery this month. Sales are very poor there for me and the monthly fee and long drive every month aren't worth it any more. Last weekend, Don and I drove to Viroqua and removed everything. To try something different I opened an Etsy shop to sell the matted reproductions, marbled paper prints and digital art cards. Later this year I will be checking out some galleries in SE Minnesota as a place to sell my original art. I am still at Gallery La Crosse and there personally every month for the First Friday receptions from 6 to 8 PM.
Another change! Today, we drove over to Kasson, MN (14 miles west of Rochester, MN) and taped a session for

The topic was Paper for Colored Pencil. The taping when smoothly and easily. I did need help with appying makeup to reduce shine. I general avoid using makeup, it is just a complication I never wanted or needed. I don't know when my presentation will be available. We might do more. Just keep checking!

Here are some of the drawings I have finished in the past month:
Bronze Han Horse, Derwent Drawing pencils on oyster Canson Mi-Tientes, 15" x 12"
Leaves in Gutter, Prismacolor pencils on gray Canson Mi-Tientes, 11.5" x 16"
Grounded Oak Leaf, Derwent Drawing pencils on brown Canson Mi-Tientes paper. 11" x 16"
Icy Oaks, Prismacolor pencils on light gray Stonehenge paper. 11.5" x 16"

May you all have a happy and successful 2011!
