Pat Averill, CPSA
Colored pencil provides a response to the emotions I feel from my environment. There is a sense of peace in simple things like a bunch of weeds in the winter sun. Light and shadow change each color normally related to the subject, and it offers me a palette of discovery and experimentation. I find myself scribbling in colors I think I see in an attempt to capture the magic. Sometimes the subject is a member of our family, such as our cat. He lies in the sun on his back and loves to dare us to touch his soft belly. He compels me to capture that feeling!
