Yesterday we held the opening ceremony for the Watercolor Society of Indiana’s annual juried exhibition. I was lucky enough to be accepted for the third straight year and am really humble because the acceptance was so unexpected. The show includes some incredible works of art. My painting is titled Convergence 2 and is on Arches watercolor board.

Convergence 2

This was painted early in 2012 not long after I lost my brave man to cancer.  I was thinking about the merging of his energy, his lively, lovely spirit with that of the universe.

This show hangs at the very generous Indianapolis Museum of Art where I am a docent.  For the last five years I have trained a pool of docents so they can use pieces from the show during their tours. For the first time I will be doing tours of the exhibit for the public. Thank you IMA for your tremendous support of the artistic community in Indiana!

    Oh, Linda! Congratulations! This piece is so filled with energy, and is also centered and complete.

      That is exactly what I wanted to communicate. That burst of energy rather like the sparks from a fire when a log breaks a part. They burst forth.

      Thank you Jean. It hangs between two prize winners but I don’t feel like its overwhelmed this year. It holds its own. (I miss that man! he still inspires me…)
