In other exciting News….
Last month I shipped my painting “Hot Wind” to the National Watercolor Society’s Annual International Exhibition. This month I learned that it has been chosen by juror Peter Frank for the Loa Ruth Sprung Award (with $2000) for non-objective painting.
It is a huge honor to be included in the show, but earning one of the top awards is the icing on the cake! I can’t wait till October 24th and the artists’ reception. I’ll be traveling to San Pedro to attend the awards ceremony and to view this amazing display.

I was also honored to receive an Award of Distinction at this beautiful exhibit of Watercolors from across the state. It was a treat to meet our esteemed juror, Ratindra Das. I hope our paths cross again!
