WATERCOLOR AWARDS

NEW ENGLAND
WATERCOLOR SOCIETY

I am so excited that the above watercolor, "Moment Before Opening," won the "Bernice & Albert B. Cohen Family Trust Award for Excellence in Light and Shadow" in the 2016 New England Watercolor Society's Signature Member Art Show.

PHILADELPHIA SKETCH CLUB
The above painting also won first place and the "Domenic DiStefano Memorial Award" at the annual "Works on Paper" show at the Philadelphia Sketch Club. This award is meaningful to me because Domenic DiStefano juried my very first painting into a regional New England Watercolor Society show. I remember looking up his work, being impressed, and crossing my fingers that he liked mine enough to accept it. Years later, when he passed, I was sad because his talent would be missed. I've since learned he was an incredibly nice guy as well. I wish I had a chance to meet him in person.

The painting will be featured on the postcard for the next "Works on Paper" exhibition in 2017.
