I am pleased to share that my entry was accepted into Watercolor U.S.A. 2014 Exhibition which will be held June 6 - August 3, 2014 at the Springfield Art Museum, 111 East Brookside Drive, Springfield, Missouri. Spent the day with Cheryl, a great friend. If you are ever in town, try the Press Room for lunch. Very enjoyable, good service, good food. Back to my brushes.

Throwback Thursday! This is a 1" (yes, one inch) watercolor painting of the 1899 Rock Island Railroad Bridge across the Arkansas River, originally leading to Choctaw Station. I did these tiny paintings while it was under renovation. It is now known as the Clinton Park Bridge. I still have some of these paintings of different parts of the bridge (on hot press paper) and place them on cards to friends. Back to my brushes.

So today I thought you might be interested to see what was inside the gift. Wow! I can hardly wait to try these out! The light is awful today and we are expecting storms (rarely a good thing). Back to my brushes.

The opening reception of the American Watercolor Society's 147th International Exhibit is this evening and I wish I could be in attendance. But alas, I must raise my glass and send a salute from home.
I received this wonderful congratulatory gift from Joe Miller and Cheap Joe's Art yesterday afternoon. Looking forward to trying out all the products inside. Thanks Joe! Back to my brushes.
