Eau en Couleurs International Watercolour Biennial

I just received word that two of my paintings have been accepted into the Eau en Couleurs International Watercolour Biennial!  This international Biennial is held in Belgium.  The show will run from August 15, 2014-September 7, 2014 and will be exhibited at the Castle of Bourgogne located in Estaimbourg, Belgium!  I am thrilled to be included with some of the top watercolor artists in the world.  The link to their website is:  www.internationalwatercolourbiennial.com

Here are some photos I found of the castle and here are the pieces that they chose to be included in the show.  This is very special to me as I am part Belgian!  Both of my grandparents, Jules & Erma VanRompaey on my Mom's side came over to live in the states way back in the beginning of the 20th century.  I probably have a few relatives over there that I have never met.

67th Michigan Watercolor Society


 The 67th Michigan Watercolor Society had its opening reception on Saturday June 7, 2014.  Paul Jackson was the juror for this show and it was held at the Flint Arts Council.  This was my first time meeting Paul Jackson who I have admired for many years.  My painting was selected to be included in the traveling show!  From here it will be in display in Charlevoix, MI  at the Charlevoix Circle of the Arts.  From there it will travel to Lowell, MI and be displayed at Lowell Arts.  The last place in Michigan will be in Port Huron at Studio 1219.  

I am thrilled that my painting will be doing some traveling this year!
Schedules of the exact dates can be found on the Michigan Watercolor Society web page or at the above galleries.
