New watercolor class at Sanderson HS. Begins 9/21

I will be teaching a 6 week course beginning September 21st at Sanderson HS. I hope you can join us as I focus on letting watercolor do what it does best- move in water. I have taught a lot of workshops/classes lately on different techniques such as pouring or atomizing. However, this will be a chance to loosen up and let water do it’s thing- move color.

2017 Georgia Watercolor Society Juried Exhibition

I returned from the Georgia Watercolor Society 2017 National Juried Exhibition on March 11th. The show was held in the beautiful Carrollton Cultural Arts Center in historic Carrollton, GA. It was a long drive from Raleigh (482 miles).  However, it is not every day you get signature status in an a watercolor association (for GWS you have be accepted in 3 of their international juried shows), and I love a good road trip! 🙂

-Dylan Scott Pierce in front of his absolutely amazing painting of a woman from Africa.  His use of complementary colors next to each other (with no hard edges) is incredibly difficult to do.  Frankly, I don’t know how he does it.  Looks like I am going to have to take his online courses.  🙂

Wish I could attend more of these receptions.  Not enough time in the day….

Student work from Watercolor Pouring Workshop

Earlier this month I had a Watercolor Pouring class at Jerry’s Artarama in Raleigh, NC.

It was a super talented group- take a look at their finished paintings:

2017 American Watercolor Society

First Friday in Raleigh went out with a whimper because of the impending doom (2 inches of snow) brought on by winter storm Helena.  Artspace closed early and attendance was sparse.

Since I was in my studio waiting for patrons I did get a chance to check my tablet.  Of course, I glanced at facebook only to see a post by the amazing painter William (Bill) Hook.  Bill had a post about getting into the American Watercolor Society 2017 show.

I gulped.  Crap (excuse my french), if he knows he is in the show- and I do not, then it usually means I was not accepted (most shows send congratulatory emails to accepted artists prior to posting results on the website).

I switched over to my email account, hoping for the best….

.. and wouldn’t you know it.  There WAS an email from the American Watercolor Society (AWS).

A congratulatory email  🙂

It looks like my poured watercolor painting of a Buddhist monk will be visiting New York City for the 150th Annual International Exhibition of the American Watercolor Society- the most prestigious watercolor show in the entire world.

I am honored to be chosen for the show- not because of the sheer number of entries, but knowing my work was ranked as one of the best paintings from the contemporary masters of watercolor.  I have yet to see the list of accepted artists, but the facebook posts I have seen include most of the artists whose DVDs and books I own (Paul Jackson, Laurie Goldstein Warren, William Hook, Chris Krupinski, etc).  People who can really paint.

I would never say I am a master of watercolor (and anyone who buys one of my paintings can attest that there is probably another ruined painting on the back of the good painting), but days like this make all the hard work drawing, framing, painting, and learning worth the journey.

See you in New York City!
