Ann Kullberg, one of the well known names in colored pencil sent me this email two weeks ago.

She has a book out, Colored Pencil Portraits, Step by Step, is a founding member of the Colored Pencil Society of America, has her own online e-zine, and gives workshops throughout the year.

I was quite excited to receive this email.

Hello Arlene,

I was blown away by your fabulous lesson in the CPChallenge...and visited your website. I'd very much like to feature your "Dahlia" piece in the Showcase section of the December issue of my online magazine, with your permission. The piece would link back to your website.

I'd also like to feature the Reflections piece in the Tips section of my magazine in order to promote the CPChallenge site, again...with your permission.

Beautiful work!
Thank you!

Ann Kullberg

You deserve it. This calls for "Congratulations!"

Your work is certainly on par with what she does. I have her book and have greatly enjoyed reading it and trying out the different techniques that she talks about. To be recognized out of the blue like this though must be an amazing experience! Congratulations.

Thank you everyone...I really was excited when I got this email.

Christie, thanks for your confidence in my work...sometime's I'm my own worst critic.

11-26-2001, 03:28 PM
Aren't we all our own worst critics? How else would we keep improving...:D

Your floral work is incredible BTW!

Well deserved recognition Arlene. Hope it leads to many more opportunities. BTW the link to your artist nation site returns a "this page cannot be displayed" message.

Thanks David, you've been a great support since the first day I ran into you on Art Calendar.

btw: the link was working for me?

Llis and Mim,
also thank you...I did get a email from one guy here on Long Island wondering if I could share my secrets...LOL

12-14-2001, 11:54 AM
Whoa, congratulations! You've come so far with your colored pencils in what seems like such a short time -- I'm constantly amazed. Did you take some kind of "Instant Media Mastery" pill or something? And if so, where can I get some?!
