The 2013 36th Annual International Watercolor Exhibition

I have been accepted to participate in the 2013 36th Annual International Watercolor Exhibition at the Watercolor Artist Society Houston (WAS-H).  This is an honor and a very prestigious event to be chosen out of hundreds of artist’s entries from around the world.  One painting is chosen from each artist accepted.  Below is an image of the accepted painting.

Last year’s participation gained me the honor to earn the status as a Signature Member.

The Art Studio is Completed

The studio is finally completed!  I have plans for many future painting series.  One side of the lower level is available for use as a gallery, party room or whatever we wish.   I am so blessed and filled with gratitude to have my dream fullfilled.  I see sharing my studio space with art students, art collectors, my dear friends and family.

This is an interior view looking north.  I had skylights installed for the maximum amount of light.  During the day no lights are needed.

This side of the garage faces the street.  The bottom garage is divided into two separate sections.  Each has its own side door entrance.  The left side of the garage will be used as the workshop and the right side will be a gallery, classroom and social room as needed.

View from the staircase entrance into my art studio.  I can view my backyard garden and the neighborhood park.

This is the new interior of the art studio.  The ceilings are vaulted so the room seems quite large.
