I've been taking watercolor classes at our local Art Association and my instructor suggested I enter one of my works. I entered the "Pink Orchids" posted below and took first place. I'm really tickled. Since I'm new in the organization, I'm entered in the 'bronze' category. No matter how good or bad you are, that's where you start. It takes 40 points to be in the 'silver' category, so I've got lots of time to stay down here with the beginners. It's funny though, my watercolor was done before I took a class. Nothing I've done in class comes close to it. I think it speaks to playing without expectations. Tomorrow, I am picking up some of my artwork I had matted and framed. It's funny how easy it is to frame someone else's work, while waiting to get better to frame your own. I'm really excited to see how my work looks framed properly.
