CPSA acceptance, signature status

Neptune's Leaves, Coloured Pencil on Colourfix Paper, 21 1/2"w x 16 1/2"h
Copyright Teresa Mallen

I am delighted to announce that Neptune's Leaves has been juried into the CPSA's 2010 International Exhibition. With this acceptance, I have earned my CPSA signature status! Of course my art has to actually hang in the show in order to fulfill the organization's requirements - acceptance isn't enough. Some of you might remember how last year my painting almost missed the shipping deadline because it was being held by customs officials. Yes, lightning does strike twice, but not real often, right?

The Colored Pencil Society of America's 18th Annual International Exhibition will take place at the Art Museum of Los Gatos California from July 22 until August 20th, 2010. For complete details and a list of the accepted artists, visit the CPSA website.

Congratulations to all of the other artists whose work has been juried into this prestigious coloured pencil exhibition!

And if this news wasn't exciting enough, I just made arrangements this morning to purchase two dairy goats. I shall be adding milk maid to my resume by the end of the week! Here is my husband with one of our ladies...oh and my flock of 25 day-old chicks arrives on Wednesday. Art, chickens and goats - life is very very good!

Congratulations on the acceptance, AND the signature status!! Wowee. That's big.

And the goats and chickens too. Golly. Will we be seeing some new "baah" and "cluck" themed pieces in your portfolio in the future, I wonder?
:~)

Ester Roi said...

Congrats, Teresa, for your art, your goats, and your chickens. I really hope to see you in Los Gatos.

Teresa Mallen said...

Yes Paula, I am sure there will be some funky goat and chicken cp art in my future!! Congratulations back at you! :-)

Ester - thank you and congratulations to you too! Los Gatos - humm - maybe???

Marthann's Musings said...

Wow I am soooo impressed. Two people whose blogs I follow had artwork accepted into the CPSA show. Your piece is lovely. So different. I love the goat!! Love your art, goats and chicks comment. Congratulations Teresa, I am so excited for you.

Liz P said...

Congratulations, Teresa! The signature status is especially wonderful!

And thanks for making me laugh out loud at the new addition to your resume!

Teresa Mallen said...

Hi Martha, thank you for being excited for me! That is so nice. :-)

Now Liz don't be laughing too hard - I am going to milk these girls, honestly. :-) Fresh goat milk and lots of varieties of goat cheese are all up ahead!! Congratulations to you too!

Jennifer Rose said...

congrats on the acceptence :D
yum freash milk!

Vicki Greene said...

It sounds like the perfect life to me! I am so happy for you, having your painting accepted and signature status - you go girl!

Teresa Mallen said...

Thank you Jennifer Rose! Yum indeed, probably going to need a new wardrobe - a larger sized one. hehe...

Thank you Vicki - and yes I'm ""going" - off in all sorts of directions but hey, 'I'm going'! LOL

Debbi said...

Congrats Teresa! I'm very happy for you, Your piece looks great and will be lovely in the CPSA show.

Pencil Sanity said...

This is such wonderful news all around. Congratulations on your acceptance and for the new mom to be.

Teresa Mallen said...

Thank you Debbi!

Oh Maria, you made me smile and laugh - a goat mommy - I hadn't thought of that. I think I can handle being an old mother hen though! LOL

Lynda Schumacher said...

Congratulations Teresa on your acceptance and upcoming signature status award. Well-deserved. I better see you there!

Lisa Duncan said...

Congrats!

Teresa Mallen said...

Thank you Lynda. Of course, congratulations going back out to you as well!

Thank you Lisa! Thanks for 'following' too. :-)

Gemma said...

oh my goodness.. that is wonderful news Teresa!!! Congrats on being juried into the show as well as qualifying for your signature. Yayyyyy!!!! Hope to see you in Los Gatos this summer!!! Gemma

CountryDreaming said...

Congratulations on your well-earned acceptance into the CPSA's 2010 International Exhibition, as well as on your brand new dairy goats and chickens! Now you'll have more subjects to draw, as well as all that wonderful country atmosphere to spark your creativity.

AutumnLeaves said...

Congratulations! I do love Neptune's Leaves; so beautiful. Methinks you are a braver woman than I...chickens and goats and art? Oh my! LOL

Jeanette said...

Fabulous news! Juried in and signature status. Good for you!

And goats and chickens as well. I haven't had goats come to stay yet, so I'll be watching your adventures and learning before I jump into things.

Chickens however, I know about. So does every other creature who wants to turn them into lunch as well! Which is why I don't have them right now. Perhaps a few egg layers this year again, still not sure.

Dianna Soisson said...

Congratulations Teresa! I really like this piece! And signature status as well! Are you still dancing in the clouds?

Goats and chickens too! You must have had some fantastic day!

Will you be going to the convention?

Teresa Mallen said...

Thany you so much Gemma. Oh, if only Los Gatos were closer to Ottawa...

C.D, thank you! Yes, livestock art, my new niche market?!? LOL

A.L. - braver, humm...maybe just more daft? :-) Thanks for you lovely comment.

Thank you Jeanette. Yes predators are definitely a concern here. I think we will try a moveable 'chicken tractor' pen once they are out of the brooder. That way they will enjoy fresh pasture while still being protected from all of the creatures that want to eat them.

Hi Dianna, yes still cloud dancing? You? Congratulations to you too!! Yes it was a fantastic day - hubby topped it off with a dozen yellow roses and dinner out! Still trying to decide about California. Are you going? Michigan isn't exactly close either! :-)

Ann said...

Congratulations! What terrific news!
Goats and chickens too, you will be busy! I just finished reading a book about goats called Goat Song by Brad Kessler and then had to try goat cheese for the first time - yummy stuff!

Felicity said...

Many congratulations Teresa! I saw the announcement on Making a Mark and knew your name would be there! :) Gosh, where do you find the time?! You must be a very busy and organised lady!!

Teresa Mallen said...

Oh Ann isn't Goat Song a fabulous book? Loved it. Have a copy. Just reread it! LOL Thanks for you kind words.

Hello Felicity, thank you! You 'knew'? Well now that is a very kind thing to say. Goodness, I sure had my doubts!! I am so organized it would probably scare you, I don't watch TV or read newspapers and I don't seem to sleep much these days. So there you go, lots of time for livestock! :-) Seriously though, I have simply made it a priority to stuff my life with as much of the 'meaningful to me' things as I can and somehow it all works out. Oh and I have a husband who builds fences and such. Would be a lot harder to do without him! Thanks for stopping by.

Congrats! It's gorgeous! I'm back to working on more pieces myself but have been up and down with my health so dropped my artwork for the last few months unfortunately.

Brenda said...

Congratulations Teresa, how exciting! Your piece is beautiful!

Gary Keimig said...

wow painting and farming. You are going to be busy Teresa.
Congratulations on the membership. Onward and upward.

Teresa said...

Congratulations!! That's great!

Re: the goats and chickens... I've been thinking about the very same thing.... my hubby thinks I've flipped my lid. Will look forward to seeing how things go in the goat and chicken dept!

Kendra said...

Congratulations on your acceptance and achieving CPSA signature status! Well deserved! Good luck with the chickens and goats, you're a busy girl now that spring has arrived : )

Valerie Jones said...
