My First Piece of Art in a Juried Show!


Should you happen visit Cape Cod next weekend please join me at the Falmouth Art Guild on September 26th, Friday from 5 to 7 pm.   My painting, “Dahlias” will be part of a juried multi-media show called “Petals and Palettes.” Two years ago I did not know what a juried art show was. I have to thank my drawing teacher Dan H. for his enthusiasm and encouragement to submit a piece into the juror process. This is a learning experience, for sure!

It is exciting to share this news with my WordPress friends. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments.

Since I was little I liked to visualize and create things. Painting with watercolors is what makes me happy now. That, and spending time gardening and reading. I love long walks, biking, and the beach. Cape Cod is where I spend a lot of my leisure time.

    Congratulations, Marian! Your painting is so full of light and I really like the contrast created by the glass with the textures of the flowers.

    So beautiful! My favorite parts are the watery shadow on the table and your skillful painting of the vase and contents within. Congrats on being in the show.

      Thanks for your kind observations, Jana. The watery shadow was a break-through for me. I suddenly understood how watercolors can blend successfully on the paper rather than on my palette. The show was a real high!
