I learned this week that both of my submissions were juried into the Michigan Water Color Society's upcoming annual exhibition. How exciting is that? I'm feeling a wee bit personally perplexed, though, because they are from the series of mostly abstracts that I was working on all last summer and fall after my Kanuga workshop with Mike Bailey. I submitted them because I thought they were good enough, and I like them both, but since then have happily turned back from the abstracts to my floral/pattern paintings. Now, the nod I have gotten for my abstract work seems to tell me, paint more of THOSE. But . . . I'm not sure I really want to anymore. So: what do I do with THAT?
