Society Of Canadian Artists, New Member

I was very pleased to find out yesterday that I have just been juried into the Society Of Canadian Artists.  It is a national art society that represents some of Canada’s finest artists.  I was very motivated to become a member for 2 reasons: 1) it has a truly national presence and 2) it offers the opportunity to be involved with a lot of great artists in high quality national shows.

I’m particularly happy because when I received my notification of acceptance they included some of the comments from the juror’s and they were extremely complementary and referred to some things that I truly take pride in such as having the painting tell a story and competence with the watercolour medium.

Here are the images that I submitted.  They are all paintings from the past 3 years and it was a neat opportunity to reflect back on the past 3 years.
