Street Scene, has been accepted into the AWS exhibition this year. Even with significant international exhibitions and competitions all over the world, our own, American Watercolor Society International Exhibition, still stands out as one of the most significant competitions in the world. What an honor it is to be a part of this exhibition in its significant 150th year. This painting was also juried into the Watercolor USA Exhibition in 2016.

Artist Statement: "Street Scene" is not a typical occurrence we might see in our streets, but in our fast changing and idea exchanging technological world, the melding of East (Origami peace-crane) and west (Raven) is more common all the time.
