Sunday, May 6, 2007 - GCWS Show

The Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society show: ColorBurst
opened today with a reception from 12 - 4 pm at the Evergreen Retirement Community on Galbraith Road. It was a good showing with lots of folks wandering and looking and commenting (note to self: If you don't want to hear the truth about your painting from non-painters, then wear your name tag that says you're an artist! ha-ha)

Out of 53 artists (each artist could have 2 paintings in the show), I think one of my top 10's was Shirley Knollman's acrylic macro flower painting called "Enchantment." It was on wc paper and it was done in a watercolor style - and it was just lovely. I also liked both of Valerie Bernardino's paintings very much, and Sandy Maudlin's "Power Surge" was a powerful painting of African women in their finery that made everyone take a double look and stand and stare - Jerry said it was his favorite (after mine, of course - he's so well trained!).

The show runs through June 3.
