Links to talented colored pencil artists...

I guess I was tagged on another blog by Cindy, a very sweet person who is amazingly talented with colored pencils, quilting, and other fabric arts. She is an amazing person who I admire alot. She offers workshops in colored pencils, so check her out!
I'm fairly new at blogging, so I'm not real sure of what to do with being tagged. That said...I'm just going tell about the blogs that I check out almost daily:

1. Cindy's (see links above)
2. Paula - Another amazing colored pencil artist, illustrator,and crafty knitter! I am the proud owner of 2 of her ACEOs! She also sells some knitted pieces here.
3. Fannie - A very creative and talented artist who seems to be very busy doing things for others. She experiments with colored pencils, neocolors, and fabric art.
4. Nicole - An amazingly talented colored pencil artist. I love to read about what she is currently working on.
5. Katherine - This blog is full of good information for artists...from composition to business to art supplies. Wow, she does a lot of research!

Hope you guys will check them out. I'm learning alot from them.

One other blog I check weekly is not an artist, but one of my former art students (and family friend) who is studying in France this semester.
6. Sarah - She is blogging about her experiences in France and I'm proud to say she is taking advantage of the art museums.

I think I am supposed to tell some things about myself, but I'm not sure anyone would find anything that interesting. Maybe later, I will try to think about that one. Hmmm.....

I am through with the portrait commission, so I hope to start working on a new project of my own soon. I'm going through reference photos to get ideas. So I will post just 2 more journal sketches for now.

  1. Hi, Beth. Awww, I was hoping to know more about you. I know you're a great teacher and artist. Thanks for the comments. It means a lot.

  2. Hi Fannie. Being a teacher doesn't really leave much time for anything else. haha. I am trying to think of something that would be interesting. That may take me awhile! haha


I love hearing from you! Thanks for stopping by!
