I'm a member of the Valley Watercolor Society (a Los Angeles area watercolor group).
Several months ago they had a jurying into the Society and I submitted two paintings to be juried in. I was accepted!! Never thought I would be as I love everyone else's work and usually am not too thrilled with my own. A stereotypical attitude I think.
Valley Watercolor Society then announced a show "H2O in 2010" and called for entries. I submitted my two framed matted plexiglassed paintings (with hanging wires no more than 2" from the top of the frame) and whoopee!!! I was accepted. Two Paintings!!
"H2O in 2010" starts this Wednesday, the 24th of February at the Viva Gallery http://www.vivaartcenter.org/The Reception (wine and cheese, ooh la la) is Sunday the 28th from 2-4 p.m. I hope, if you're free, and live in the area, you'll come see some really fine work.
