Another view of the berries and fruit..
And my favorite... A blatant copy of a painting by my favorite painter, Mel Stabin.

When I compare
What I have lost with what I have gained,
What I have missed with what attained,
Little room do I find for pride.
I am aware
How many days have been idly spent;
How like an arrow the good intent
Has fallen short or been turned aside.
But who shall dare
To measure loss and gain in this wise?
Defeat may be victory in disguise;
The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

I submitted three matted paintings to the Central Ohio Watercolor Society (c.O.W.S.) jury process on Saturday. This is a tough group to get in to. Applications for membership are only offered once a year. I left the paintings with the jury about 1pm, and was to return at 4 to pickup my paintings. There were approximately 10 applicants this year. I did get a chance to peek at my competition. I thought I had a good chance.
My former teacher (Charlie) who was on the jury, later confided in me that I was in and that I had one of the top scores! He wasn't supposed to tell, but have to wait for the official letter in the mail.... Of the 10 people trying to get in, 3 made it.
Now I can add the c.O.W.S. to my signature on my paintings!!! How fitting on my painting of the cattle!
