I was glad to get two paintings accepted into the Utah Watercolor Society Two-Star/Signature Show and was pleased to also receive an Award of Merit. My watercolor painting “Reflections of Solitude”, a painting of Lake Powell, received the award while my painting “Scotney Tower” was also part of the exhibit. We traveled to Ogden, Utah for the opening reception at the Eccles Art Center in Ogden, Utah and enjoyed seeing a great exhibit and renewing acquaintances with all my fellow artists from UWS. Special thanks to show organizer Bethann Swanson for all her hard work and to Maura Naughton for safely delivering my paintings. I’m grateful to belong to such a well-run organization.
