2nd Place Win!!!

2nd Place Win!!!

Well the saying goes “Blow your own horn, cause nobody else will”, so I’m about to do just that.  I received notice about a month ago but was not allowed to share till now that I took 2nd place in Colored Pencil Magazine’s 2016 Competition for my piece entitled “Threesome”.  This win provided a slew of prizes including :

• 79 Prismacolor Mixed Media Set• 1 Year Digital Subscription to CPM• Inclusion in our 2017 calendar• Listed in our November CPM issues • Free November Digital Issue• 1 CPM 2017 Calendar• Displayed winner on our website in the Official 2016 Gallery• Certificate• 1 Stonehenge 9×12 White Pad &• 1 Stonehenge 9×12 Multi Pad from Legion Paper• $25 Gift Certificate to Blick Art Material

Here’s the link if anyone is interested in purchasing a copy of the magazine or the calendar.  There are some really amazing pieces in there.  http://coloredpencilmag.com/issues

I was very surprised and excited to receive this as since our move to Sandy Hook I have been totally absent from my art and missing it very much.  Now we are moved in (amongst some construction still and a ton of boxes) and I hope to get back to doing my art again soon.  As a matter of fact I just got my computer up and running today (squeezed in on the dining room table).

There is an extra garage on our property which my husband and I are planning to turn into my full-time studio where I plan to teach as well.  I have also applied to be part of the WAVE here in the Interlake hoping to have enough art done to participate in the fall event.

  1. Congratulations Terry ! Fantastic news and worth every bit of blowing your own horn! You are definitely a master painter of coloured pencil art! As well, I did not know that you found a place in Sandy Hook. Great news…I look forward to seeing your work in the Wave.

  3. Hi Ashley – thank you for stopping by and the review. “Threesome” is a 16 x 20 on Bristol Vellum. It took me about 150 hours plus to complete. It really was a joy to do once the horses started to come alive.
