Flag Hill Sunol 14 x 21 Plein Air Watercolor

 "Flag Hill Sunol" has been accepted into the Triton Museum of Art Statewide Painting Exhibition and Competition.
There were over 900 entries and 80 paintings were selected for the exhibition.
Flag Hill Sunol was painted with the San Francisco Chapter of the California Art Club during the July 2011 Paintout.
It will be on exhibit December 10, 2011 to Feb. 12, 2012 and the reception is Friday, December 9, 2011 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. I am anxious to see this all media all subject exhibit. The Triton Museum of Art is a beautiful space to see art .It is especially satisfying with the convergence of two of my favorite California Art Institutions

Thank you Carol and Helen, I use hot press paper which helps with the color saturation.

thank you new!
The reception was last night and it was very crowded, not great conditions for viewing the paintings. I got to meet Peter Carey whose watercolor was a show stopping original. I would not have wanted to jury or judge this because there were so many great artists, but the exhibit does show the art of painting is alive and well in CA, realism abstracts conceptual interesting materials card board, collage , encaustic , everthing except photography.
