In the mean time I wanted to tell you while I was in Ontario judging the Bay View Watercolor Society water media show that I had the opportunity to meet Ona Kingdon what a lovely person and such a talented artist.
Ona's painting "Comfor-Ted" won first place. I loved the depth of color in her washes and not only the amazing detail in her teddies fur but the texture and feeling that you could just hug them. She not only won the award I presented to her during that week, she had been awarded signature membership of the North West Watercolour Society NWWS, receive my elected membership of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour CSPWC at their AGM in Toronto and the John Singer Sargent Award and $1000 at the Transparent Watercolor Society of America 2012 Exhibition.- what a week for her and well deserved success.
Signing the awards for the Bay view watercolor Society.
What an amazing sky we had on the night of show and such a dramatic send off to a wonderful workshop week.
