This painting is inspired by design elements that I saw as I walked around the facility. Lately I’ve been basing some of my work on patterns and when I saw the pagoda I thought it had some great patterns in it that I could work into a painting – ditto the windows of the stone hut.
I decided to combine those design elements into a little "painted collage" - hope my ideas work!

I was asked to juror the Bethesda North show this year and I'm a nervous wreck about it. Since I've so often been on the receiving end of a judge's decision, I'm well aware of how an artist feels if their work is not accepted into a show. This is a huge responsiblity and I take it very seriously - and I don't want to mess it up!
If you are interested in entering the Bethesda North show, it is for artists within a 50-mile radius of Cincinnati, Ohio. You can click on the link for more info or to request a prospectus.
Two of my paintings were accepted (one each!) into ViewPoint ("Flights of Fancy") and the Ohio Watercolor Society show ("Oriental Roses").
We have two Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society shows coming up. The first is at Kennedy Heights Arts Center, located about 2 miles south of Kenwood Mall, and I hope you will be able to either attend the opening or drop in some day while the show hangs. This is a great facility and I'm so looking forward to this new venue for our Society. The fall show will be at Evergreen Retirement Center and we will have 3 cash prizes.
And, last but certainly not least, my painting "Ying Yang Mums" (April 25, 2012 post) was accepted into the National Watercolor Society 92nd Annual Juried Exhibit! YIKES! I had to pick myself up off the floor for that one and re-read the email twice to verify what it said!
