1/4 Sheet Watercolor
Arches 140#CP

I painted another series of grapes after I visited Doris -- and for this particular one, I wanted my grapes to be a bit rosey - almost like one would find in a rose wine ...

I entered it in the Kerr-Lake Art Society Autumn Exhibit -- and won first place for watercolor!! I AM THRILLED TO PIECES!!! Even comes with a monetary gift! WOW!

Thank each of you for your encouragement and kindness during my 'watercolor journey' ... Truly, you cannot know how your comments and invitations and generosity have kept my brushes moving along white paper ...

Blessings and gratitude!

This is SO gorgeous Lin. What a beauty. I can see why it won first place. The way you have painted the colors is magnificent and the detail superb.

I am so happy for you and so proud of your accomplishment. You should bask in this glory and enjoy every moment of your success -- you've worked so hard at your watercolor and you deserve all this and more.
Hugs and heartiest congratulations,
Lorraine
