Painting accepted in juried show
"Skip Gets the Coconuts" is a 22 x 30 transparent watercolor painted (with permission) from a photo by Jane James has been accepted into the 42nd Annual Watercolor Wisconsin juried show sponsored by the Racine Art Museum in Racine, WI. The awards ceremony and reception is Dec. 7. Even if I don't win an award, this is an honor to have my painting accepted. Watercolor Wisconsin is 'the' watercolor competition is Wisconsin.
I had also entered this painting in the Wisconsin Regional Artist Association show in September. This is a non perfessional artist organization with over 600 membeers. The juried show had 150 paintings selected with over $4,000+ awards given. I received an award on this painting. You can see the winners at www.wraawrap.com.
I knew when I saw that Jane had posted this photo from her trip to Jamaica that it was begging to be painted. Thank You, Jane for giving me permission.
