Watercolor Artist June Issue


"Anticipation" top image was my submission for the "What Do You Love" Watercolor Artist competition.  Beyond thrilled to be and Honorable Mention Winner.
So when I first started painting seriously about 3 years ago I made my out of the world dream list.  On my dream list was to be published in one of the big art magazines.  So it was a surreal moment this weekend to get my advanced copy of June's Watercolor Artist Magazine.  On page 55 I have a painting published.  Pretty crazy stuff!!!  I have been on an incredible journey so far.  I have had my ups and downs and seeing my painting on page 55 just makes me want to work even harder.   My late night painting sessions, lack of sleep, and obsession with painting are paying off.  I can not wait to see what the future holds.  I sooooo appreciate my blogging and facebook friends.  I am so motivated every time I post something and hear from you.  The encouragement and advice is invaluable, I feel so fortunate to be an artist at this time.  So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  10. Congratulations, Carrie! I can't believe you have only been painting three years. Your work shows such skill and such a deft hand. Wish I could do half as well and I've been playing with it since I was about 5.
