I have had such a wonderful time meeting so many amazing artists here in Kenosha at the TWSA celebration. To be able to see such magnificant paintings in person and be able talk to artists such as John Salminen, my fellow Canadian Harold Allanson, Robin Berry, Ken Call, Cheng-Khee Chee, Lennox Wallace, Debbie Rankin, Joe Garcia and Donna Jill Witty and Kelly Kane Editor of Watercolor Artist magazine to name just a few was inspiring to put it mildly.
I spent a couple of hours just looking around the exhibition with Mary, Kaaren and Chris and chatting to the public. Its always such a pleasure to just listen to their comments about the paintings.
To receive the John Singer Sargent award from Jill Witty at the celebration dinner yesterday evening topped off a wonderful day.
