Paradise Glow wins First Place!

Watercolor painting of red blooms and foliage
Paradise Glow Framed watercolor $450

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Paradise Glow, my painting of the desert red bird of paradise plant, won First Place in the NM Watercolor Society’s Southern Chapter juried exhibit! Thank you to the exhibit judge Robert Dozal for choosing my piece. This is a first for me to win an award in an NMWS show!

Jeweled Crown Framed watercolor $450

I have a second piece juried into the exhibit called Jeweled Crown. Thank you to juror Linda Doll for picking both of my paintings to be in the exhibit.

You can view the entire show here: The show is a really nice one with artist’s comments under each image and also comments from Robert on the show and the prizewinners. The exhibit is online only because of the pandemic, but we were scheduled to be at the Branigan Museum in Las Cruces and hopefully will be there in another year. They are super to work with. So please sit back and enjoy the exhibit: Rough and Tumble: Life in a Desert Town.

  1. Glad this whole thing is working out for someone (YOU) Congratulations!!! Enjoy the limelight! I have decided that I really don’t like online anything!!! I cannot sit that still any longer and find the formatting to leave much to be desired. Attended a virtual Quilt Show and Vendors Mall, the photographs sent in were less than stellar and the Vendors Mall wasn’t much fun! I think I will use this as a bonus option for getting other things done!!!


    • Thanks Beth. I’ve enjoyed the various state and national online watercolor exhibits because I could never travel to see them all in person…it’s better than not seeing the artwork! You get so much done…you go girl!
