The Guild of Boston Artists is at 162 Newbury Street in Boston, the very street where I first went to college (the now defunct Chamberlayne Junior College). I am so pleased to be in this show and once I finish framing the piece I've entered, I'll be heading up to Boston to drop it off. The opening reception is August 6th.

This piece is called "Red & Green #2" which is a companion piece to #1, the first still life I did in 2002. Last fall I was flipping through the photos I took for this series and pulled out the one for this. It's good to go back and take another look as things catch our eye differently. I love the dramatic lighting and drapery. This is done entirely in colored pencil on white Stonehenge paper. I use no black; instead, I create a warm black with layers of my darkest colors. It makes a big difference.
