Last year we took a wonderful trip to Cuba. We spent 12 days on a "people to people" exchange, touring the country and visiting artists studios, senior centers, historical landmarks, day care centers, fishing villages, museums and dance and music venues. The following paintings are faces and places from this fascinating country that touched me in some way.

From January 14 to February 25, my painting, On Vacation, hung in the 47th National Exhibition of the California Watercolor Association. This is my first national show! It was fun to go to the opening in Pleasanton with family and friends.

Amazingly, for the second year in a row, I received the Best of Show award for one of my paintings at the annual open WASH show. This year it was for Fall Colors.
The painting is of persimmons from my back yard, in one of my pottery bowls, with some dried seed pods from the back yard, all sitting on my grandfather's rug, which I love to include in paintings.
