My favorite watercolor teacher from long ago, Judy Wengrovitz, called to tell me I'd won a cash award at the state show awards dinner last Saturday! How exciting, and what an honor to be one of my state's winners.
Also, I'm one of 29 artists selected to paint"en plein aire," in the Mountain Maryland Plein Aire Event in late May in the Cumberland, MD area. I have not participated in this event before; I look forward to it.
I'm currently working on a series of "From the Top" paintings of Italy. All of these works have strong dramatic lighting and are landscapes with a different perspective. Here's an early look at "Minor Adjustments;" a landscape of the Cinque Terre region in Italy.
