The 15th Annual Art on Main was held August 12, 2023 in Downtown Three Lakes.

I was awarded Third Place with the judge commenting that my artwork was beautifully rendered, relatable imagery.  As always the kids had fun doing watercolor postcards and pictures.

I had a great time teaching watercolor at a private home class.  The seven students all produced an amazing painting.

On July 1, 2023, Vicki participated in the 3rd Annual Golden Pear Pop-Up Market in downtown Three Lakes.

It’s Summer 2023 in Three Lakes, Wisconsin and that means the Aqua Devil Waterski Team is having their twice weekly shows for the public, every Wednesday and Saturday evening at 6:30pm.  These kids, ages 10-20 are accomplished water skiers and they really know how to entertain!  If you’re in the area, come see them.  I am supporting them by donating my Aqua Devil cards for their fundraising.

Eola Wind Spinners was accepted into the 55th Annual Watercolor West International Juried Exhibition.  This was my third acceptance which means on July 8, 2023 at the Opening Reception, I will be awarded my Signature status.  The Exhibit will run from July 8-August 12, 2023 at the Coastline College Art Gallery, Newport Beach, California.

It’s always fun to do a painting as a wedding gift.

On July 2, 2022, I was invited to participate in the 2nd Annual Golden Pear Pop-Up Market in Three Lakes, WI. It was a gorgeous day that brought out lots of locals and summer residents to view paintings, pottery, photography and jewelry.  I was also interviewed by a Channel 12 News team about the event.

It was a double thrill to be accepted into the 2021 50th Anniversary Florida Watercolor (FWS) Exhibition with my painting “Anhinga” (above). This was my third annual acceptance which entitled me to Signature Membership in FWS.  Keiko Tanabe, an internationally known watercolorist, was the juror.  In addition to my painting being selected to the exhibition it also merited the following awards: the Mary Ann Hollars Memorial Award, the Plein Air Magazine & Streamline Publishing Award and the Golden Colors Award.  Due to the ongoing pandemic the FWS Convention had to be held virtually but the exhibition paintings were hung by the Coral Springs Museum of Art (photos below).
In her critique of “Anhinga”, Keiko Tanabe commented: “…it takes a developed eye to identify a unique design in nature and it takes a strong skill to turn it’s potential into a well composed painting.”
