I'm very thrilled that my painting "Reflections" won Honorable Mention in the acrylic division with the Artist Network Mixed Media Online Competition which can be viewed here: Artist Network - All Media Competion . I'm not sure if I belong with such a group of talented artists, but it's a happy honor nonetheless and it's one of the best things that has happened to me so far!   

 Going through a dry spell, I'm wondering about the direction I'd like to take with my art.  I've not been very happy with my last two watermedia paintings I started, but never finished and I'm totally uninspired with the theme of "That Was Then and This Is Now" theme for the Colored Pencil Society - San Diego all members show.  I feel out of the groove so to speak in all the societies I belong and could be spreading myself to thin. I think I need to go into seclusion for a while and just paint and experiment for myself.  That said, it's time to take my sketchbook and go to the beach!
