Happy Birthday to Me!
Plein Air Salon
I am delighted to let you know that your painting “Illusions" won the Second Place Overall award and the Best Overall Watercolor award in the recent June/July, 2016 bimonthly PleinAir Salon competition.
You also won Best Figure in a Landscape for your painting “The Curious World of Reynaldo & His Twist of Lime Suit.". The judge was Richard J. Demato, owner of RJD Gallery in Sag Harbor, New York.
I plan to reproduce both in the October/November, 2016 issue of Plein Air Magazine.
Your paintings are now considered semi-finalist winners and will be judged for the cash awards that will be announced during the PleinAir Convention & Expo in San Diego, CA from April 24-28, 2017.

In addition to having "Quorra by the Gate" accepted into Splash 18 I just found out that "Family Foto 3" was a runner-up. Here are the details regarding runner-up status.
Rachel Wolf’s Runners-Up Selections for Splash 18:
Congratulations! Reaching runner-up status in Splash is certainly praise-worthy! For Splash 18 we received more than 1600 entries from watercolor artists all over the world. I looked at every one of your paintings multiple times, and liked each one very much. I only wish we could publish a book of 250 pages to allow for all of the wonderful art work we receive for Splash. Thank you so much for your interest in the contest. We are so appreciative to all of you wonderful artists.
Keep on painting and best wishes!
