Today, I was happy to receive notice that my poured watercolor floral, “Water Lily II,” was accepted by juror, Birgit O’Connor, into the Aquarius National Watermedia Exhibition 2014. This national exhibition, sponsored by the Southern Colorado Watercolor Society, is held biennially at the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center in Pueblo, Colorado. Exhibition opens September 27, 2014, and runs until January 3, 2015.

It was my intention not to enter any competitions this year, but try to concentrate on painting. This is the only exhibition entered, mainly to show support for the SCWS. With two entries, this poured watercolor was chosen over another more tightly rendered floral. It does validate this work with its first acceptance into a national juried exhibition and that I haven’t completely lost touch with entering competitions.
