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 Bear 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.”
