At the end of each year I usually take a look back at what happened in the prior Art Year.

This past year my artwork was accepted into:
  • 121st Woman’s Art Club Juried Exhibit – The Anniversary Clock won the Winsor & Newton Award
  • Georgia Watercolor Society National Exhibit - Swirls
  • Hoosier Salon – Japanese Tea won the Outstanding Watercolor Award and sold that evening!
  • 46th Annual ViewPoint National Juried Exhibit – Swirls and Daisies on Daisies
  • The Artist’s Magazine 31st Annual Art Competition: Still Life/Interior (Finalist) “Oriental Roses (Acrylic), “Yin Yang Mums” (Watercolor)
  • Pennsylvania Watercolor Society’s 35th Annual International Juried Exhibition (received Signature) – Flights of Fancy
  • Watercolor Society of Indiana Annual Juried Show (received Signature) – Industrial Revolution
  • Two of my paintings have been published in the book Artistic Touch 6 – Red Paisley Scarf and Flights of Fancy
In addition, I held two workshops.

My plan for this year is to take time to simply produce more work, so I may not be entering as many shows this year.  It will depend on what I have available, and I’m not going to put myself under that “deadline” pressure.  We shall see!

My best wishes to all of you in your artistic endeavors this year.
