Strawberry Festival Art Show

                                             ~  Sophisticate ~ Pencil 20x28

 ~ Eye of the Horse ~  Pencil - 11x14

 'Joey'   W/C  ~11x14 
These will be my entries for the Art Show coming on March 1st here at  Strawberry Festival.. it runs for eleven days . It's a juried show and I'm entering 2 pencil works and one watercolor. 
  I have no expectations of winning anything, as I've never seen pencil win over an oil.. However, these are my choices.
 My photos on the pencil are not true to life. The contrast is not there, but  a great photographer I am not.  BJ

  4. Barbra, if pencil can't beat oil then water color can! The beads are just absolutely perfect! You are a winner already!

  8. Excellent pieces, all of them, and they show what a wide range of skills you have. "Beads" has always been a favourite of mine, "Kelly's eye" is amazing, And "Sophisticate" is out of this world. Good luck with the show and I hope your work gets some recognition - it deserves it. :)
