15 Apr Working in San Diego!
If you are anywhere near San Diego in the month of May, plan on visiting the San Diego Watercolor Society Gallery and seeing, first hand, an exhibition of incredible Watermedia paintings from nine states! It is this year’s annual Western Federation of Watercolor Societies juried competition. I was honored to be asked to judge this year’s show comprised of almost 1000 entries! The paintings were so strong it made it a very difficult to judge and to eliminate one in ten! Equally hard was choosing the awards for those paintings, because, of course, I loved every painting I chose. The show will run from May 1 – 30 and I guarantee you will enjoy the versatility, skill, expressiveness and creativity of these paintings and their creators.
Along with teaching my Watermedia class, “Chaos to Order”, I began the program with a demonstration. Using an old watercolor painting and applying my “Gesso Juice”. Keeping Peace” (featured above) is the finished piece from that demonstration. It is 15″ x 22″ and is available for sale at $450.
Be well, paint often, be happy! Kathleen
