Watercolor Success!!

I have had a pretty good year so far with my painting. As I talked about in my last post I had a great trip to Mississippi to see the Paul Jackson Exhibit and got to hang out with Paul and Marla and make some new friends. Just recently I found out the my painting "Reflections of Sedona" won a weekly contest with Daniel Smith Art Supplies and the biggie for me so far this year is that it also will be in the Texas Watercolor Show in San Antonia, TX!!

In addition I recently finished teaching a beginning watercolor class. I truly enjoy teaching watercolor. It is the coolest thing to unlock the pent up creativity and belief in these artists. The look in their eyes when they see that what they actually created, is far better than they imagined they could. Its also is a priceless feeling for me.

At this point I believe I will be teaching again for the Plymouth Education Foundation some time this summer. If you have ever said "I gee I wish I could paint" There's an excellent chance you can, if you just give it a try. 

Right now I am busy deciding on the different art fairs and shows to participate in, as well as contests and exhibits to enter. So far I am planning on the following shows:

Marshfield Mothers Day Art Fair...................................May 12th, 2013
Marshfield High School Fieldhouse

Cedarburg Strawberry Festival.....................................June 22-23, 2013
Washington Avenue Cedarburg

Check back as I may be adding to this list! I guess it will depend on how well received my work is received at these!
