"Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul." - Edgar Allan Poe

Friday night at the Pembroke Arts Festival was a little exciting with the downpours and thunderstorms going on.  Kudos to the committee and helpers who rushed the paintings from under the Art Tent and into the building... the tent seemed about to go under at one point and there were 6" deep puddles throughout......
Nevertheless, Becky Halekty and her team were able to not only rescue all the paintings, but went ahead with the awards ceremony right on time.  Good show Becky!!!

Here are my two paintings that won Honorable Mention and escaped unharmed... 
"Road to Amsterdam" which has now won Three Honorable Mentions this year...WooHoo! 
and Sagrada Familia, Barcelona.... Honorable Mention and the first show I've submitted it into. 
....I feel blessed!

It's been a  long time since my last post and I've been lucky enough to do some wonderful traveling. Two weeks in China, 900 photos and some sketches, so hopefully I will be posting some China paintings this Fall.

Good news... I just found out that I Won 3rd Place Watercolor in the Duxbury Art Association Summer Show for "Waiting in the Wings".  A painting done from a photograph of a very dear friend's grandaughter that I just had to paint!
