I am very happy to announce that my painting October Leaves has been selected for the Arts International show, opening October 3, 2015 at the Art Junction! It was one of 68 paintings chosen from 145 submitted. This is the annual juried show of the El Paso Art Association.
As I blogged about in an earlier post called Try and Try again, this was a piece that I went back to months after it was “finished” because I didn’t like the background and scrubbed it out and redid it, adding more layers of leaves to the pile. You can go back and read to see the process if you’d like. Guess it shows that persistence works…and that watercolor CAN be forgiving!
