GOOD NEWS!

I had a call today informing me this painting has been accepted into the Western Federation Watercolor Society exhibition!  I was very pleased because it's one of my favorite paintings.  I was hoping to go to the opening of the show in April but it is a few days before my teaching at Kanuga.  Too bad as Las Vegas is a great town to visit!

I have been hearing reports that the January issue of Watercolor Artist is out but I haven't seen it yet.  The bookstore told me it should arrive by the 19th at the latest.  The painting from the CWA national show is in this issue along with the other 2011 winners from shows around the country.  The staff at Watercolor Artist asked me to write the Creativity Corner article for the April issue of the magazine.  I was honored to  be considered.  The creative challenge for me was in keeping to the 450 word text limit.  The staff at the magazine has been great to work with.   It will be fun to see what paintings the readers come up with after reading the article.

I was leafing through the new issue of Watercolor Magic 2 days ago and immediately saw and recognized your work. We were in the car and I got so excited that I startled my husband, "Look! It's Myrna's painting!" We're both happy for you-it's great to see our SCVWS celebrity members in print!

Hi Myrna,
Congratulations! Such a wonderful painting, it would be hard to imagine them not accepting it. So, Myrna, artist, teacher, writer...what's your next world to conquer?
If 2011 ends like this, imagine how fabulous the New Year will be!!
All the best to you and your family, Myrna.
Sincerely,
Gary.

Congratulations! And Holiday greetings.

Wondering if you might respond and say which image in your "Drawn to the Mirror: 365 Days of Self Portraits 2010" best reflects the elements of your award-winning watercolor?

I love this painting!! It just blows me away - everything from the multiple views to the colors and the textures. And of course the whole feel of the thing. Congratulations on your painting's acceptance to the exhibition (as well is should be!)
