"THE MYTH OF THE YELLOW PENCIL"-oil on canvas by EILEEN MCCOY

"The Myth Of the Yellow Pencil" 

This painting, (along with my other entry to be posted later) was inspired by my daughter's art class in an humble area of Arkansas. It is one of my 2 entries selected for the 2015 MVIS juried exhibition in St Louis, MO (location below.) The classroom has a riot of cups filled with yellow pencils in varying degrees of size and sharpness (or lack thereof). The yellow pencils (unlike the rigid yellow school busses used for transporting the students) represented the freedom of expression and individuality of the children. The pencils flow haphazardly in the dingy plastic cups, which were clearly left behind by someone's random lunch-run many years prior. 

The painting is for show and sale at the venue below:
