Just notified today 7-17-10 that my drawing of Tucker was nominated for the Pay It Forward Group
I want to thank Byron AKA Barnsis (link below) for this wonderful nomination. Byron was also one, of if not the first person to welcome me to redbubble when I joined almost 2 years ago.
We have made a fast, a famous friendship and even found out we have the same birthday!
This is truly an honor and I am so pleased that this piece means so much to Byron…it was a joy to draw!
Here is what Byron had to say about this nomination …“I would like to nominate Susan Bergstrom to Pay It Forward. Susan is a very talented artist in many different mediums including pencil drawings of many dogs, cats, birds, horses, other animals as well as people. In addition she does painted art of Native Americans, Western characters and numerous individuals. She is also a very talented photographer. She resides in Mesquite Nevada where she operates an teaching art studio. She is a very gracious lady who helps people in many ways.
Here is my favorite art work by Susan. It would of course be my favorite since she did this colored pencil drawing of my dog Tucker from an image I had posted here on Redbubble. This art work now hangs over my desk here at home; Susan was kind enough to allow me to have her drawing.
I would greatly appreciate your consideration of Susan for the Group
Okay..this is my rendition … of Byron’s-barnsis … crazy,goofy, four legged best friend, Tucker.
If you have ever seen Byron’s captures of this silly beast you will see why I decided to overly animate my interpretation of the photographs’ Byron sent me.
Tucker reminds me of a Spirit that is sent to you to keep you young, on your toes and show you unconditional love…as long as there is a treat in it somewhere along the line*…. LOL
Hope this brings a smile to your face Byron (and Julie) …I really tried to get serious, but I was not in control of the pencils…Tucker was a joy to flurry through…
This is an original Pastel Pencil and Prismacolor Pencil drawing.
Drawn on card stock,medium tooth artist drawing paper.
All of my work is sprayed with a protective fixitive for preservation and prevent fading
Thanks for viewing my art.
My Fine Art and Photograph Studio…featuring personal “one on one”, 2 and 3 day Retreats in both creative areas, is located in the eastern desert of Nevada/Arizona.
