MN 2020 State Fair Acceptance!


After trying for about 20 years, I finally had a painting accepted into the MN State Fair. My 2020 painting is titled ‘Corona Time.’ Early in the sequestering time for the Corona Virus, I was not feeling creative. Nothing I attempted painting turned out to my satisfaction. Finally, I painted my anxiety, confusion and uncertainty into this painting. It unlocked my creativity. Since that time, I have created paintings that I have successfully used in Zoom classes and one called ‘Hearts’ was accepted into Watercolor West’s 2020 International Juried Exhibition.
