I attended, and volunteered, at the Watercolor Society of Oregon convention hosting the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies this past weekend in Eugene. Twelve states of watercolor associations meeting in Oregon to celebrate, learn, and connect. The best of the best saw their painting hung at the Jordan Schnitzer museum and it was very beautiful and inspiring! Even though I did not jury into the show I felt included in this large group of artists who create.
I love, love, love my solo studio time where I am alone to explore but, oh.... these gatherings fill my need for socialization, laughter, and noodling new ideas and techniques.
Connecting with others....surrounded by Inspiration....and that forever eagerness to create......
I am a happy artist!
