Am I Blue?
This is a large colored pencil (16x20) on Bristel Board.  I wanted to do a study in transparency, and my grandmothers' old cobalt glassware were perfect.  I chose the skulls as a sharp contrast in opaque-ness, and an artists' comment on the fragility of life.  Deep, huh?  Occasionally I go there!  I am still a bit timid with the techniques of colored pencil, and having finished,wish that I had layered a bit more, or taken a class with an accomplished pencil artist.  But on the whole, I accomplished what I set out to do.  I enjoyed the experience, and learned something!
