This past week end the Southwestern Watercolor Society Show was held at the PFamily Arts Center in Plano TX. Keri (my daughter) and I flew to Dallas, to be there for the reception.
It was such fun, and a great honor not only to get my signature status but to have one of my favorite artist friend present it to me!  I met Naomi Brotherton in 1999 in Graham TX.   I went to Graham to take her workshop, and we have been good friends since that time. She is a wonderful friend, and a wonderful artist.
She is still teaching! Every week! I hope when I am her age, I can too!
Kay Smith from Big Spring, another good friend was also in the show,  and was there to accept her award.. A good school friend, Diane and her husband, Everett also came to help us celebrate. It was so good to get to see them!

Congrats it seems like lots of fun! I like how the name-tags have a photo of your work so people can readily connect you with your lovely creations. Wonderful idea!
