Thanks, Linley

I may go to the reception for that show just to see what did get accepted

Aloha

Oh Mea, I'm sorry about the rejection - I know from experience how that can sting. But WOW - I think it's even better that you'll be exhibited in a restaurant seen by 100 people daily!!! Maybe you can have a little reception there? And yes, it's good to still go to the show - it will give you a good idea of what they look for in artwork when you reapply next year!
Cheers,
Sharon

Thanks, Liz.

Association of Hawaii Artists has an exhibit until June 18 in Honolulu Hale courtyard.  Your friend Jack Lee was my hanging partner to set it up.

Reception is Thursday, June 1, from 4 to 6PM.

I have two paintings in this one.

Enjoyed the Association of Hawaii Artists Aloha Show reception last night at Honolulu Hale (City Hall).

Top painting is "Lady Rothschild Orchids" in watercolor (gouache) and the bottom is watercolor "Mahogany Moonlight."


They were both juried into the show, so I feel good about that.

Mea, you look so good with the garland of flowers. Lady Rothschild suits you so well in the background.  O0

Thanks, Gita.  The young lady who curated the show gave me the lei for being such a help to her. And the president introduced me in her opening remarks as the "jewel" of the organization!

Felt pretty good.

Oh! Mea, we are all SO PROUD of you.  It seems like yesterday that you were only beginning your art journey and look at you now.  Absolutely fantastic.
