The reception for the Arkansas Territorial Collection Exhibition was held last Thursday by the Heart of America Artists Association (HOAA). I think everyone there would agree that it was a fun reception, quite crowded, and the food was great. (Those coated pretzels were my favorites. Two thumbs up!) I am pleased to share that my painting titled Losing Traction won a merchandise award. This is a traveling exhibition and I hope that you will have the opportunity to see the show when it is near your area. It is exceptional.
Other good news, I learned today that I have received signature status in the Watercolor Honor Society! Spent a great day yesterday in Springfield, enjoying spectacular weather. Dropped off a painting and spent some time enjoying the school exhibit at the art museum. Stopped by a local restaurant and had a late lunch or early dinner. Whatever you call it, it was enough calories for an entire day. Delicious.
Hopefully I will soon have time to sit down and paint again. Back to my brushes.
