On May 9, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation establishing Mother’s Day, a national holiday to be celebrated annually on the second Sunday of May. The woman responsible for its inception was Anna Jarvis (1864–1948), who wanted to memorialize her own mother and as a result saw the value in honoring all mothers. In Britain, Mother’s Day is celebrated in mid-Lent as Mothering Sunday. During the Middle Ages a custom developed of allowing those who had moved away to visit their home parishes and their mothers on Laetare Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Lent. Many other countries also celebrate the holiday on this date.

When considering a gift for Mom think of the gallery, Missouri Artist on Main.

The art of Colored Pencils

Henri Matisse once said that painting and drawing are one. Perhaps this in truer of no medium than it is of the colored pencil, in which an artist can create works that are full of energy and color.

MAOM colored pencil artist Susie Tenzer

Most artist associate contour or line drawings with colored pencils. You don’t have to use them just for lines. Many techniques are possible, such as;

  1. Blending. Applying one color over another.
  2. Burnishing. Applying a lighter color over an existing area of color.
  3. Cross-hatching. Horizontal lines of color over vertical lines of another color.
  4. Using erasers. Hard and soft erasers create different effects.

Using sharp pointed pencils and building up many layers of color it is possible to create works that have great depth and texture.

Join Missouri Artist on Main for a great workshop with Sandy Brooks to explore this fascinating medium.
