"Listen to the Music" Received 8th Place Award

"Listen to the Music" received 8th place in the Georgia Watercolor Societies Annual National Exhibition in which the juror, John Salmimen called the work, "brilliant."

With this win,  Christine was given signature status with the Georgia Watercolor Society.

Artist Statement:
The Georgia Watercolor Society was the very first national exhibition that I received a first place award. This win encouraged me to enter other national exhibitions. The first -  first place award was given to Black Birds and Tree Tops. I entered this work in other exhibitions and repeatedly it won awards. I am not sure why, but perhaps the comment by the juror for this award gave me some kind of clue. She said: “I have never seen anything like this – this is an outstanding work.”

The second award I received from the Georgia Watercolor Society was for Flowers From the Garden II

The third piece selected for the Georgia Watercolor Societies National Exhibition was Listen to the Music. And this honor gave me the honorary status of becoming a signature member.
