|Piper Playing Cello|
by Jane McElvany Coonce
The Art League had the jurying today for the small works show. I entered "Piper Playing the Cello" and it was accepted!!!! That always puts me in a good mood when I get into their shows. Competition is stiff, so it's not an easy feat.
This is a watercolor I did of my great niece, Piper. Her mother, Leighanne, took the photo and I couldn't resist. I've really been working on my watercolor techniques. I am more comfortable as an oil painter, but watercolor is intriguing. I think when an artist tries a new medium or a new technique, it makes them grow as an artist. Watercolor is a lot less messy. Easy set up and easy clean up.
This is my first watercolor that has been accepted in a juried show at The Art League. The show will hang for the month of November, so if you get a chance, take a trip down to Old Town Alexandria and see all the small works in The Art League Gallery.
