"Pulito" - Best of Show

This is my painting that just won Best of Show at the Waterloo Watercolor
Group Fall juried show. Our juror was water colorist and author, Elizabeth Kincaid.
I was stunned when I found out and am still floating a bit. Winning provided my
first cash prize ever! Whoopee - now I can reimburse myself for all my art supplies.
"Pulito" is Italian for "clean" - it's my abstraction of laundry we saw hanging outside
a home in a small Italian town during our last European adventure. The entire show
is now on exhibit at the NWH Gallery. The address and directions are written in red
to the right of my blog.

Art and I went down to view the show this afternoon. First time for me to really walk through at my leisure. I am so excited about the work that you are doing. Did you think you had a winner when you completed and signed your painting? It is an exceptional painting.

Smear some more paint girl. It's working! No really you are doing fine work. I'm very happy for you and proud of you.


I'm also happy to see the better prices on your work.

The wwg show is still crisp and interesting. I'm impressed with so much talent the group has.I'm glad to have gone down and viewed it. Beryl and Joe won awards. So proud of them.
Yes Art was a bit proud of my painting too. I saw your best of show when I brought mine in for hanging and I liked it a lot. But when I saw it again yesterday I saw so much more. I hope you plan to enter it in another higher venue. So interesting!

I love this one. I really want to see this one in "real life". I can see a lot of reasons (even on the computer) why this one stood out. Great work! Congrats again. Real money! Whooohoooo! You go girl!
