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.
