I'm about ready to start on this next painting. Have worked all the kinks out and I am comfortable with the end drawing. We'll see how it goes. About to finish up this piece for a local fundraiser if I can ever get the wax sealant finished. This piece cannot be framed, so I decided to use Dorland's to finish it. Let's just say it is labor intensive. Back to my brushes.

Today went to see the Angels and Tomboys exhibit with my partner. Here are two of my favorites "Lotus Lillies" by Charles Courtney Curran, and "Reading by the Brook" by Winslow Homer. I believe this one by Homer would have been unbelievably beautiful as a watercolor. Unfortunately and as usual, no watercolors in this particular exhibit. Wind your way downstairs and you will find a small exhibit of works on paper and there you will find a few - one that was painted by the first president of the American Watercolor Society. Back to my brushes.

Saw today that my painting "Cadillac Contemplation" was used for the reception flyer for the ANA exhibit on August 10th. That was a very nice surprise. The weather here is unseasonably lovely and my partner and I had lunch in Eureka Springs on the Basin Park Hotel veranda. Back to my brushes.

Received notification today that my painting "Nepheline Wave" was accepted into the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society's 34th Annual International Juried Exhibition! Very excited and honored to be included this year. It will be held at the Crary Art Gallery in Warren , Pennsylvania from October 5th through November 15th. Back to my brushes.
