Signature Showcase

Well, the demo at the Appleton Museum for the Ocala Art Group went very well. We had a nice turn out, enjoyed lunch with friends, did our thing and sold some books. Sometime soon Kelli will be posting a photo or 2 from that day. For right now though I want to show you this.......

I got my copy of the Signature Showcase book yesterday and it's beautiful! And, I'm in it!

Hard to believe it's been 20 years since the beginning of CPSA and the letter that Vera Curnow wrote to the Artist's Magazine wondering if there were other colored pencil artist's out there. The book features work by 177 Signature members. To become a Signature member you have to be accepted to the CPSA International Exhibition 3 times within a 10 year period. Like the Best of Colored Pencil series, all the work in the book is 100% colored pencil but with this one you get to read a little something from each artist. I've been lucky enough to go to some of the conventions and meet people who are included in this book. Every time I open it and see their work I think of them and the time we had at the shows or FL chapter meetings.

The book is a limited edition so don't wait too long if you want your own copy. To order one go to this page. BTW.... the art on the cover is by the very talented Bonnie Auten.

PS: When you get your copy make sure you find page 59. :)
