Elephant Ears Won First Prize

I’m really happy to report that my painting, Elephant Ears, won First Prize for Watercolor at the 32nd Annual Vintage Artists Gallery exhibit.  Interestingly, members of the Riverdale Art Association, of which I am Vice President, won top awards in the Oil/Acrylic, Sculpture, and Graphic Arts (and, of course, Watercolor) categories.

Elephant Ears

I saw this plant last year at the Orchid Center in Delray Beach, Florida when I was recovering from cancer and the idea of painting something called Elephant Ears made me smile.  Just think about how apt the name is for that plant, yet how different the painting is from what you might expect from the name.

My husband took a picture of a post-chemo-no-hair me at the Orchid Center to commemorate my recovery.  I won’t be showing you THAT picture.  But looking at this painting does make me grin.
