Looking forward to a productive new year and hope the same for all of you!

I've spent the last month or so painting - but the wrong kind!  Walls and shelves, not Fine Art!  Still have a long way to go on that project.

I took a little time to review 2015 and thought I would share with you a recap of my artistic accomplishments (below).  It was a good year for me.

This year I'll continue to enter some shows and hope to get into a few.  My classes continue and there will be a few small workshops throughout the year.  (You can go to my Workshops Page above to see a list of those).
2015 Update

  • Georgia Watercolor Society National Juried Exhibit – Flight of the Bumblebee
  • Ohio Watercolor Society Annual Juried Exhibit – Central Time

Wow! Looks like you've had a great year!! I haven't been very active with the Cincinnati Art club this past year since joining the Ky Guild. I hope you're still pretty involved with CAC. Your work is amazing!
