15 Mar March (ing) into Spring!
The month of March holds all the promise of Spring (officially, at least, even though so many are still battling the effects of winter). I found, and bring to you, a little bit of Spring from Charleston, where I was painting with art friends last week. I had a chance to practice my En Plein Air technique on the prevalent live-oak trees and blooming azaleas. It was the perfect week!
Back in the studio, I’m wrapping up my accepted painting, “Locomotion”, to go to the Georgia Watercolor Society National Exhibition. I send it off with a kiss…always hopeful of getting a “nod” from such a respected judge/artist as John Salminen.
I’m most thrilled to learn I’ve earned the National Watercolor Society (NWS) Master Artist (MA) Status because I’ve been accepted in 6 of their international competitions over many years of competing! MA are a couple more initials to add to my “alphabet soup” that while silly to some, still mean a great deal to me. I see those letters as my credentials, my higher degree and steps in my life-long career as an artist. Paint on, my friends!!
