Just learned that my painting was accepted for the 2014 International Watercolor West Juried Exhibition, and since this is the third time, I qualify as a signature member! If only my sister were here for me to share the news with -- she was always my best viewer and greatest supporter, and she'd have taken pleasure in this success. Anyway, here is the painting that will be in the show:
Picnic Anyway 1945
It is based on an old photograph of my five aunts at a family picnic after their parents had been killed in a car-train accident and before the war ended.
