Once again, since I had not attended the show opening, I grabbed a couple friends and we drove up to Indianapolis to see the Watercolor Society of Indiana show.  Each year the show is held at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

This is a small show but a lovely facility, easily accessed, free parking, restaurant - all the perks!

These two ladies are both in TWSA - and you can see why!  Cheryl Lowe's painting "The Last Blast" (left) won an award.  Anna Roberts' painting"Up, Up and Away" (right).

I just liked these next two - "Berry Buzzy" and "The Union Preserved" which won an award.

Then there was mine (again, no award!)

After viewing the show and stopping in the gift shop which is directly opposite this gallery, we headed to the restaurant for lunch.  They have really good food here, just so you know - in case you, too, would like to join friends for an "Art Day".

Here was our view while we ate:

Time to head home and, although I've made this trip multiple times with no problems, apparently I cannot talk and drive at the same time since I accidentally took the ramp to Dayton!  Oops!  However, once again, 2 GPS found our way back to I-74 with a lovely tour of Post Road!  (This is a detour I won't live down any time soon since I had proudly announced on our way up that I would not be needing the services of a map . . . . )

Oh well - more laughter, a beautiful day, good friends, good food and Art - what more can we ask for!

The show runs until December 3, 2016.

Dear Deb your painting of the thread spools is amazing. It certainly in my opinion deserves an award. Glad you had fun and took in some oops wrong way scenery. Makes traveling so much more fun: )! Have a great week. Thanks too for your visit and good wishes.
