CPSA DC214 Member Show

I was honored to have won an award for excellence at our local CPSA Member show last month. As always it was a beautiful show with pieces from lots of our members and also local artists from the city of Cypress and surrounding towns.

I also entered my portrait of my sister, Esperanza, which was done using the Icarus board. I had a last minute rush to get it framed and though the do-it-yourself frame I choose was not ideal, it turned out looking alright. I really like this portrait because it has the look of a painting done with a fluid medium. But it's all colored pencil and wax crayon melted down with the help of the Icarus board.
