Art Exhibition Opening

Art Exhibition Opening
I've had a surprisingly fine run in the latest juried watercolor submissions. Of the last four juried shows that I've entered, the maximum number of paintings were accepted, two in the Vermont Watercolor Society Fall show, three at the Yarmouth (ME) Art Festival, two in the Art in ME Exhibition, Boothbay Harbor, ME, three at the Nocturnes Exhibition, Middleboro, MA (below), opening this weekend. And in the nonjury show entered before these, my painting was Best in Show in the 10" x 10" Show at the Port Clyde (ME) Art Gallery. You never know.
