Detail of Brunette, 30x22 watercolor done from a failed sunflower painting that was juried into the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies 2011 annual exhibition.
This year's show will be held in New Mexico and this is the 3rd point earned with WFWS towards signature status. I made up this figure and am thrilled that it is the second reworked/recycled piece that has made it into WFWS. My first one was of yellow wildflowers. So do not throw in the bin any that you don't like. Keep them and eventually a new exciting artwork may result.
The Federation is comprised of 11 watercolor societies who take turns hosting; juror for the Albuquerque show is Dale Laitinen. The show runs 6 May-5 June 2011. The WFWS website can be seen at this link: http://www.wfws.org/
