Greetings everyone! For those not quite in the loop you may have noticed that I have not posted in quite a while. The reason for that is we encountered some very serious health issues in our family which did not allow me to focus on my art but rather our health. Without going into detail I will say that hopefully we are on the road to recovery and getting life back to somewhat normal again, such as that is. I do want to thank everyone who has supported us through this time. It was amazing to see how are friends and family rallied around to give us hope and friendship in our time of need.
Back in 2018 I stated that I would be publishing a newsletter from my website and now I have the time and opportunity to do just that. These newsletters will be on a monthly basis and will cover lots of areas of interest for all things colored pencil, as well as tidbits regarding such things as values, choosing colors, perspective and other items that can relate to other mediums as well. I will also talk about the materials I use, my techniques for realism in colored pencil as well as share some step by steps on simple projects. I will also have a Q & A section so if you have a particular question you’d like some help with please feel free to send it to me and I will try to answer and post for the next newsletter. If you wish to sign up for the newsletter just go to my website and sign up. There are no sales, no distribution of your contact info or sharing of any private information. Simply put, a newsletter just for you! I hope you will find it useful. The first newsletter will be coming out within the next week.
In addition to the newsletters, I wanted to share my two latest pieces that I have intermittently worked on for months now, given the situation and I have finally finished them. One in colored pencil and the other in watercolor. Both of these pieces are currently for sale on my website and will be hung in the Gimli Art Club and Gallery for sale as well. Like almost all of my other works, they will be available in print as well, with the printing done by Carl at Joe-Lynn Design. His workmanship is outstanding with prints on the highest quality paper and high quality inks for deep rich colors. Check out his work at www.Joe-Lynn Design.com.
