A few weeks ago I received the notice that my painting of a common loon, titled “Ripple Effect” has been accepted to the 37th Annual North East Watercolor Society International Exhibition this year! Whoo-hoo!! Perhaps I’ll find myself the recipient of an award when the show opens on October 20, 2013…one can only hope! This is my third time having artwork accepted to this international exhibit and I believe it will qualify me for “Signature” status with this regional watercolor organization. This is VERY exciting and one of the goals I’ve been working towards the past few years. The “official” notification letter confirming this will be sent out at the the close of the show in early November. You can be sure I’ll be checking the mailbox daily! If you live near The Gallery at Kent Art Association in Kent, Connecticut, I hope you’ll stop by to see the show. This exhibit will open to the public from October 20th through November 3rd.
