|Spring in Margo Franklin State Park 9x6
I just submitted two pieces for the Iowa Watercolor Society's Mini Show that will be at the Johnston's Library in July. (this may seem like not a big deal, but to me, it's the start of a journey I started 3 years ago when I picked up my first watercolor set.) Although this show isn't juried (meaning anyone who is a member can submit work,) this will be my first show where I have artwork as an Iowa Watercolor Society Member. So to me, it's a big deal. Want to meet me with my art? the Artist's reception is June 29, Opening day is June 1st!
OH and BTW I totally see my style as a painter, so watch out world, If I can see it in my mind's eye I will be painting it! (it's as simple and as hard as that!)
When intuitive painting meets watercolor, that is my happy place!
Not familiar with "miniature shows? They are small paintings on display in a show, the finished piece can't be larger than 8x10 framed. So matted and framed can't be over 8x10! I like these small paintings, I think they are perfect for the novice, or student watercolorist to be able to show their work!
I also want to thank the local libraries that bring in art shows to their libraries, It's a wonderful way to share talents in the community. All the artwork that is sold during the show the artist gives back 10% to the library as a thank you for letting the Library show their work!
so... even though these pieces are part of my heart, I get to "try" and sell them! I am sorta excited!
