More Shows and Exhibits

Me with Donna Zagotta
While I can't find much studio time, I have been able to send images out to quite a few Exhibitions. My last post included the painting "Herons' Winter Dreams" which was accepted into the Northwest Watercolor Society International Exhibit. I was fortunate to be able to attend their Artist's Reception and Award Ceremony, where my painting received the Printing Center USA Excellence Award. What a thrill it was to meet the Juror, Donna Zagotta, and get a personal critique of my art. I was also very happy to have several friends from the Seattle area attend the reception with me.

With friends Kazy, Laurel, and Allison.

Additionally, last night I attended the Opening of the Pacific Northwest Art Annual at UO. Again, I had family and friends come out to see my two paintings in that exhibit. I feel so well supported!

This morning I got the good news that another painting has been accepted into a national show.  This one is Red River Watercolor Society's 21st Annual National Juried Watermedia Exhibition. The juror, Michael Reardon, chose my painting "Sing Me the Legends." This painting is a sentimental favorite of mine, and wasn't truly "finished" until I reworked it last spring.
