The school year is coming to a close and the summer time for more art and writing is fast approaching. My students attended the Texas State Visual Arts Event and had a great day in College Station. We enjoyed seeing the best High School artwork in the state. I taught an ink workshop to so many young talented young artists. My new friend and fellow artist, Anat Ronen, was there creating amazing sidewalk art!
The National Society of Artists held their annual art show and my new ink piece, "Bass, Crappie, Perch," took 1st in the Drawing Category Professional, while "Fish Market," the giant river otter and kingfisher painting, took honorable mention in Professional Watercolor.
Tonight is the Mainland Art Show and all three of my pieces made the juror judging, "Mara Elephant" ink, "Jaguar Pantanal" and "Hyacinth Macaws" watercolors.
April 29th will be the Houston Gateway Spring Art show where my students will showcase over 300 pieces of their art and win over 20 prizes of medals, ribbons and art supplies. I am super excited to see who will win the awards. It has been a successful year in Art with my students and I have enjoyed leading them into their imagination and talent on their journey into the arts.
Enjoy my 2 new inks and new watercolor paintings.
Until next time, thank you for reading my blog! DOUG HISER
