:Big, Big news.  I was thrilled to get into San Diego Watercolor Society’s International Show this fall…BUT even better, I just found out I won a prize!
It feels just as good as winning first prize at the Santiago Elementary School Art Show in 1958.  This is my first Prize in a National Show. It amounts to $250 cold cash, no new pencils or block of crumby paper, REAL MONEY.
This means I may just about break even on this enterprise.  It gets expensive shipping these paintings all over the place.  After appropriate amounts of form, cardboard and tape,
the box is the size of a pillow top queen size bed.  If I’d seen the writing on the wall early on, I should have gone with knitting when I quit smoking.
Pretty skeins of yarn, a few needles and a reasonably sized cute carry bag, AND possibly something to wear. Odds are not.

J & I are going to the reception on Oct. 3, 6-9 at SDWS Gallery at 2825 Dewey Rd, #105, San Diego.
If you’re in the area, please join us.  I’ll buy you a drink.

The Valley Art Gallery in Walnut Creek selected 4 of my paintings for their new fall show.  Drop by.  Its a tiny Gallery with those slide out walls small galleries use to accommodate lots of work.
Its fun working the walls even if you’re not needing art.

Walnut Creek is turning 100 and Celebrating through Art at the Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center for the Arts.  September 21- November 16.
Should be an interesting show because it includes ALL mediums and they are going to hang it Salon Style.  Lots to look at!   My watercolor is called Va di Vi

I’m knee deep in CWA National Exhibition.  For all this work, I hope I get in this year.  Missed it last year.

I have a few new things on my website.  ruthmillerwatercolors.com
