National Watercolor Society Exhibition

I was pleased to find out that my painting, Lamayuru Chorten, was selected to be part of the 2011 National Watercolor Society Exhibition. The show will open October 22nd at the NWS gallery in San Pedro.
The NWS annual exhibition features some of the best water media artists in the country. It should be a very good show, and I'm flattered to be included.
This particular painting features a chorten, a Buddhist shrine, that my wife and I visited in 2004 as part of a trip to Ladakh in northern India. Lamayuru Monastery, one of the most revered Buddhist monasteries, was the starting point of our week long trek. It was an incredible trip, and I tried to capture some of the beauty of the area in this watercolor.
