Canadian Portrait Exhibition! Where are the watercolourists???

Hi everyone,

Sorry i've been so quiet over the last couple of weeks. I've been battling yet another  infection and had to go into hospital for a while. I had some good news yesterday though. My painting of a very dear friend Denis Keegan has been juried into the Portrait society of Canada on line exhibition. Hope you take the time to look at all the wonderful paintings in the exhibition. You can even vote for your favourite.

Another friend of mine Ellen Catherwood has also got two of her paintings juried into the show. Congratulations Ellen!!

Both of us were shocked though to see that we are the only two watercolourists in the whole show!!! Only 3 paintings out of 91 paintings juried in are watercolours!!! Why don't watercolours get chosen?  Anyone have any thoughts???
