ACEO - 2 1/2 x 3 1/2"
colored pencil on paper
This is my favorite of the ACEO Sunset Series to date. I'm not sure why but it could be the colors, the composition, the subject or maybe all three combined.
Once I had a family member ask me how they would know when art is good. My response: when you like it.
"My Neighbor's Fence"
14 x 20"
Colored pencil on paper
I completed this piece about a year ago to enter into a show but it didn't make the cut. So, being the sensitive artist that I am, I put it aside because rejection is never easy.
But recently I dug this up to take another look and was quite pleased with it and myself. So I thought I'd share the final work with all of you and let you, my readers, be the judge. Yep, give me your honest opinion.
Once, I had someone describe being an artist as similar to standing naked on a busy street corner. You expose yourself and your work and need to be ready to take the response you receive. Not always easy, but something we are driven to do. Ahh, for thicker skin, no?
