Yesterday I spent time in the studio preparing my painting, ‘Vessel,’ for the Watercolor West’s 46th International Transparent Watercolor Exhibition. You may remember this painting from the Watercolor Society of Oregon’s Fall exhibition in Bandon, Oregon, or the traveling show of award winners that toured the state in 2013.

I am honored that juror Judy Morris included it in this International Exhibition. This is my second inclusion in the show. Looking at the list of accepted artists is like reading the Who’s Who of Watercolor artists in the United States. While the last painting I posted, “Coming Through the Rye,” was not accepted to the NWS Open show, this acceptance somewhat makes up for it. I hope my painting arrives safely in Brea!

The show will run October 11 – December 14, 2014 at the Brea Civic and Cultural Center, 1 Civic Center Circle, Brea, CA 92821. Awards will be announced at the Artists’ Reception, October 11, 5-7 p.m.
