Simply Southern- Watercolor© Sue Grilli
I had been waiting for the mail to arrive with news about my submission to the Georgia Watercolor Society’s Member Exhibition. As an artist, I’ve submitted many paintings into juried shows and it never seems to get any easier waiting on the replies. Not quite sure why I put so much stock into whether I get in or not. I’m supposed to be satisfied with my work as it stands, which I am but there is something about getting recognition from your peers that seems to validate your work.
When the letter finally arrived you can imagine I was a bit hesitant about it’s content. Will it be a “thank you very much but….” letter? Well this time it was a “Congratulations” letter- yeah!
I can’t say how excited I was to be juried into this show. I know in previous years there had been exceptional work at this show.
So, today I actually dropped my painting off at the Lyndon House Arts Center in Athens, where there exhibit will be. What a beautiful venue! I truly hope that anyone in the area has an opportunity to go see it. It will be there from August 20 – Oct 15, with the Reception being on Oct 15. And you can bet I will be there!!
