I have been teaching colored pencil classes and found that students are dependent upon
verbal advice for color until they become familar with the full color range of the Prismacolors
which they use.
I have created a color key kit for my students to use and assist them in their color choices.
The student uses their own pencils to color in the preset blocks. This also enables them to
practice their application of the pencil strokes.

After racking my brain for a title for this piece I have confidently named it "Changing Perspectives".
My style, approach, and subject matter is slowly evolving as is my life (career, family, and friends). I
have been searching for a title that simply conveys that.
A book I am reading "Beauty" (A Path to God) by Anthony J. Ciorra explains how art (the beauty of
God) can translate faith. There is one sentence that seemed to be spotlighted for me as I was
reading it. Have you ever had that moment where you read a word, sentence, or paragraph, or been
involved in a conversation and you said "THAT'S IT!!!!! THAT'S ME!!!!!" Well this is that moment! It
explains both my life and art simultaneously. The sentence....."Prayer does not make art by
changing circumstances but by changing perspectives." Prayer has not changed anything in my life
except the fact that I have learned to accept situations that I can do nothing about. I have no control.
(Imagine that....I can't change anyone or anything...only myself.) I can breath now as I am VERY
SATISFIED and LOVE the title.
Those of you that know me closely will see and understand this piece and I hope that other viewers
can or may some day relate
