Bill Lewis Memorial Award
I met Bill Lewis in 2011. The MSW show was the first watercolor juried exhibition I had ever entered and Bill was the Gold Medal winner that year. I have a photo of him on my desktop from a paint-out we both attended. We had much in common besides our love of watercolor, as we were both dealing with cancer at the time. It is indeed an honor and a warm pleasure to win an award honoring his memory. My sincere thanks to Jo Ann Talbert for sponsoring this memorial award and to the judge Lynn Ferris for deeming my work worthy of it. At this special time in the organization’s history I also take this moment to celebrate our wonderful art community as well. So, I raise my glass - Here’s to Bill, a true inspiration. Back to my brushes.
