It would not have been the same with out all of you. Sincerely! The enjoyment in creating art is the sharing! See a sample of their works in OIL PASTEL SMUDGE below which were at the show.
I was pleased my vision of how I wished the show to work turned out just the way I imagined. You never know.
You think it through, and only hope all is well. Come see me and the other fine artist "Smudgers" at the reception Saturday, July 19.
“OIL PASTEL SMUDGE" Exhibit Artist's Reception / Demonstration July 19th South Valleys Library Reno, NV 07/16/2014
I contacted the South Valleys Library 2 years ago to hold an exhibit of "OIL PASTEL SMUDGE" during ARTOWN. (www.renoisARTOWN.com) It was well worth the 2 year wait.
I have some fabulous students joining me in this exhibit showing their interpretation of this exciting technique using a self made template and working in positive & negative shapes.

It would not be the same showing without these wonderful artist's taking the OIL PASTEL SMUDGE technique that I am sharing, to another level. Much thanks to all of you.

Sherry Hunter currently residing in Yuma Arizona, as she and her husband are retired and traveling, (in a cute little tiny adorable trailer, I might add). She took a chance and entered her Smudge work in the Mountain Shadows Association's Annual Judged Fine Art Show. In taking that risk and putting herself and her art out there, and up for judging, she found herself walking away with a 1st Place Blue Ribbon in the category of Oil Pastels.
Congratulation's Sherry! I am so proud and excited for you.
