I am very pleased to announce that my painting, “Mandarin Orange Blessings”, has been selected for the Watercolor Society of Oregon’s 2016 Spring Exhibition!  If you are in the area, please stop by to see the Spring Exhibition in Silverton, Oregon.

Watercolor Society of Oregon’s
50th Annual Aqueous Media Exhibition
April 9 – May 22, 2016
Oregon Garden Resort
Silverton, Oregon


(There is no charge to view the Exhibition)


Previously, “Mandarin Orange Blessings” was honored to be included in the Northwest Watercolor Society’s Annual International Open Exhibition, July 1 – September 30, 2015, Seattle, Washington.

Lucky Cat has proved lucky again! The mandarin oranges in my painting symbolize wishes for prosperity and happiness. As I painted, I loved how the oranges took on a glow from within, almost like candles. The Chinese calligraphy character in the background means “blessings” and is repeated four times to symbolize many blessings.

Happy Painting and wishing you many Blessings!  ~Patty
