LOUISIANA WATERCOLOR SOCIETY 44th Annual International Exhibition

LOUISIANA WATERCOLOR SOCIETY
44th Annual International Exhibition
Juror: Anne Abgott AWS, NWS
My painting was accepted in the LWS watercolor show a few months ago.
My wife and I found a babysitter for the two kids (thank you Abu Titi- my wife’s mother) and for the first time in 7 years we spent a weekend without children.  My how time flies…..
As a bonus, we would be spending the weekend in New Orleans.  New Orleans, as we all know, is a non-festive, some suggest boring place to travel.  There is never a parade or party going on.  And there is nothing to see except for the bar upon bar upon bar on Magazine Street (my personal favorite) or anywhere in the French Quarter.
The show was fantastic.  The super talented English painter David Poxon won first place in the show.  There were many local artists who attended and my work was hung with contemporary modern watercolor masters such as Antonio Masi, April Rimpo, Iain Stewart, Laurie Goldstein-Warren, Ken Call, Don Taylor, and others.

The weekend was great.  Wonderful art, met some fantastic painters, and did I mention that we saw Arnold Schwarzenegger on Magazine Street?
When you teach children to draw pictures of people, you try to steer away from the BIG head and stick figures they commonly depict.  This is anatomically inaccurate.
Unless you are ARWNOLD.  In this case, after seeing him in person, I think the stick figure with the massive head (albeit with a few massive muscles) is spot on.  I was looking at a person with a 50lb watermelon as a head.  Weird!
Sorry Governator.
