CPSA Silent Auction
Each year the CPSA holds a silent auction during convention week at the Annual International Exhibition. If you get a chance to go, be sure to attend Thursday night of convention week. It's a fun night where you get to see all of the entries, get some great door prizes, and bid on the auction. The auction quickly escalates into a frenzy of last minute bids as everyone tries to get his favorite piece. I was one of the invited artists this year to contribute a piece to the silent auction. Auction pieces have a size limitation of 11" x 14" matted so that everyone can take their piece home in a suitcase; also, because the auction is called "Small Works of Great Magnitude".
My piece for this year's auction is titled "Kiersten", and was completed with Prismacolor Premier, Caran d'ache Luminance, and Lyra colored pencils on Light Blue Canson Mi-Teintes Touch paper. I really love the color of the Mi-Teintes Touch paper, and matted the piece with 3/4" of bare paper. If you like it, you can bid on it on the CPSA show Thursday night, 8/1.
