Fair Entries

"Frizzle Chicken" - Colored Pencil 8" x 10"
I can't believe it's nearly Western Washington Fair time again. As I have for the past 11 years or so, I entered artwork which was juried in to the Fine Art Show. I drew "Frizzle Chicken" for this year's special category, birds. I struggled for HOURS trying to develop the shadows and nearly gave up. I do like the result so I'm glad I persisted.


"Jersey Wooley" - Colored Pencil 3" x 3"
 I entered these two miniatures which you may have seen on previous posts. I sold "Jersey Wooley" on the spot to one of the people who help out with the show every year when I dropped it off. My second miniature entry, "Venetian Window Kittens" won an Honorable Mention!

Fluffy bunneh, fluffy chickie. :)

I don't blame the person who scooped up the Jersey Wooly--I would have done the same.

Wonderful work!

I used to work with colored pencils, but don't think I ever got the results you have with lights/whites. Wow!

I think all of them are fantastic, but the texture of Frizzle's feathers... WOW!

Congrats, Sue! You do beautiful work! I know how hard it is to do the many colors of white, and the whites in the Frizzle Chicken are fantastic!!
