Tooting My Horn: Recent Awards

I just have to brag a little — I’ve won awards from Southwestern Watercolor Society, Irving Art Association, and Trinity Arts Guild!

This November in IAA’s Collage, Assemblage and Printmaking Exhibit, my watercolor monoprint “Leftovers” won 2nd Place in Printmaking. It was composed of leftover ghost prints from several images, thus the name.

This September in the 51st Southwestern Watercolor Society Members Exhibition, my acrylic monotype/painting called “Just a Step to the Left…” received the Creative Catalyst Merchandise Award. Yep, it’s a reference to Rocky Horror.

In the 59th Annual Irving Art Association 2014 Members Juried Exhibit, my collage “Reading for the Moon” received a 3rd Place in Mixed Media. It was made from acrylic monoprints. My son Sean has claimed it, so it’s going into his art collection.
