Southwestern Watercolor Society – Best of Show

Jorde_Faded_Star_webI’m very grateful to Juror Bob Burridge for selecting my painting for the Naomi Brotherton Award out of an exhibition that included many outstanding and respected artists. Being recognized as Best of Show is a real honor. I found out about a week ago and still haven’t stopped smiling!

The painting is based on an old oil station in Jefferson, Texas, where the watercolor group had a paint out in the spring. My plein air effort was a failure, but the light and shadow shapes were so compelling that I tried it again in the studio. This painting was the result.

Faded Star, 21 x 14 inches, watercolor and gouache on gessoed paper.
