Mayan Gate, Watercolor, 14.5″ x 21.5″, 37 cm x 54.5 cm, $1300

Also got word this week that Mayan Gate was accepted by juror Iain Stewart, for the 2015 Georgia Watercolor Society National Exhibition. This will be my third year (in a row) in a GWS National Exhibition, which means I will be a Signature Member. Woo Hoo! Show will be at the Ogelthorpe University Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA, March 14-April 26. I’m very honored to be in the show, and to be a Signature Member with GWS!

On an artists note, I just wanted to mention once again, if you enter competitions or have an interest to, keep trying!  Lion Dance was passed over a few times, to finally land a spot in a show.  It’s never a good idea to try to second guess the taste or preference of the judge because you just never know.  It is a good idea to submit the best work that you have in your inventory at the time.  Make sure you read the prospectus carefully for size restrictions, and other criteria for EACH show.  They vary from show to show.  Keep those brushes wet and good luck!

  1. it is wonderful – congratulations. Not easy to get into these shows as the competition is fierce.
    Thanks for writing your thoughts about rejection and to keep entering a piece you are proud of. It is a crap shoot in many ways, depending on the taste of the judge. Not only that – they may have already selected a few similar in theme and that can be another reason for rejection.
    Again, congratulations, KIM!
