An Award and a trip to Charleston, South Carolina

Hi Everyone

"Reminiscence" original watercolor by Carrie Waller received the $250 1st Timer's Award 
I've been off again vacationing:)  The kids and I went to South Carolina to visit my Mom, Step Dad and Grandma, we also visited my brother and sister in-law and nephews on the way in Alabama.  It's been a jam packed week and a half.

While I was away I won the $250 1st Timer's Award from the Mid-Southern Watercolorists 43rd Annual Juried Exhibition (my first time entering the exhibit).  The Arkansas Times did a nice write up about the exhibit and included the image of my painting in the article.  To read the article click here.  My wonderful hubby went to the reception and received the award for me:)

I also got the chance to meet Helen Beacham in person and paint with her and got to see Nancy Rhodes Harper's art in person at the Atelier Gallery in Charleston.

Perfect Charleston Charm!
