October Song earns First Place! Yippie!!!

I was pleasantly surprised to take a First Place award at the Riverside Art Center's  show this last Friday night.  The competition was very stiff and so I am honored as well as surprised.

This is the painting that took the honors - "October Song" -  a poured watercolor  finished with negative painting techniques which I finished late last year.  I posted this last November after painting this for a pouring demonstration.  The painting is approximately 16" x 20" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

Needless to say - I was blown away and very happy!!!
