Catalog from the American Watercolor Society Arrived!


The American Watercolor Society Exhibition Catalog  for the 151th show arrived today! The quality of the catalog is first rate and nicely designed.  Excited to see the show.  I always learn something new from other artists whenever I attend the show. Honored to be a part of this as I have received my signature membership this year.

Fresh Paint (Peinture Fraiche)

Here is a new painting "Peinture Fraiche" or Fresh Paint! When on a tour of all the fabulous patisseries and chocolatiers in the Marias district in Paris, we came across this lovely very vivid yellow shop called "Maison de la Prasline Mazet". The outside had just received a fresh coat of yellow paint and they had signs all over letting you know not to touch or you will have a fresh coat of yellow paint on you also. As part of a series that I am developing of patisseries in Paris, I would like to have a collection that can possibly be turned into a future calendar or cards etc. If you look inside the shop, you will see a head of someone in the corner looking out the window. Also, of note, is the hand print to the right indicating that someone did not pay attention to the signs.

I have achieved Signature Status with the American Watercolor Society!

I am proud to have received notice that I have been accepted into the American Watercolor Society as a signature member! My painting "French Lace" will be part of the American Watercolor Society 151st Exhibition for 2018! When working on a painting, you get a feel for how it is developing and while working on this one, it was coming together very well. Looks like another trip to NYC is in store this year.
