Best of 2009

The February 2010 issue of Watercolor Artist is out with the Best Watermedia Paintings of 2009. It was nice to see my entry from the 30th Pennsylvania Watercolor Society exhibition, Bay St. Girl, among them, especially as Tokyo Express missed the publishing deadline for this issue last year. Had to win it again! :) I'll be the juror of selection for the PWS show next year.

Also in this issue is a great article/interview with Janine Gallizia, by editor Kelly Kane. Some fantastic pics of Janine's work, don't miss it!

I've been in Sarasota and Tampa the past week for a local event, meeting with Da Vinci, and seeing a lot of friends. Also visited Dean Guitars. Some announcements on the music and art fronts coming up. I ran into old friend photographer Pete Carmichael, who was another buddy of Valfred Thëlin's way back. The weather is beautiful, makes me miss this place!
