I got home from LA at the end of last week then packed the car over the weekend and headed to Atlanta! I have been looking forward to this trip for quite some time! I'm here to see the Georgia Watercolor Society's Annual National Exhibition. I'm honored to have been selected into the show by an artists whose work I have been a fan of for quite some time, Iain Stewart. Since he juried the show, he is also teaching a 5 day workshop which I am also taking. Since I have been doing more plein air painting, I hope to gain a lot of takeaways that will improve that endeavor! At the reception on Wednesday night I will be accepting signature status in the Georgia Watercolor Society since I have been juried in to this show three years in a row. I'm so honored! This has been an incredible painting journey for me and then to top it off, I found out Sunday night when I arrived Iain had given my painting in the show, Mayan Gate, an Honorable Mention Award!!! The week just can't get any better!!! Well maybe it can, I get to paint with Iain again tomorrow!
