“Best Wyoming Artist” award

posted in: Musings | 0

Wow, what a great surprise to open my email yesterday to discover I was awarded the Best Wyoming Artist award at the Watercolor Wyoming 30th Annual National Exhibit this year, which is hanging at Sagebrush Community Art Center in Sheridan.  I am thrilled, to say the least.  The painting that won the award is titled “Caldera Beauty”, and is a colorful depiction of equally colorful thermal hot springs in Yellowstone National Park.  I was playing with some new techniques in this piece, namely watercolor crystals.  I use them to add colored texture in appropriate places and paintings.  I love the results and this painting in particular benefitted from their application.  (Update to this post – the painting was not even in the gallery for 2 weeks before it sold – yay!)
