Accepted into FWS Show

Diane Ziemski moved to Hernando Beach, Florida to be close to her son and grandkids and to be in weather that is healthier for her husband, Larry. Diane put painting on hold for three years due to Larry's health issues. She now finds herself picking up the paintbrush more. When her youngest grandson saw her painting (to the left) he said "I saw that bird."

Diane joined Florida Watercolor Society in March of 19. "I saw that bird" was accepted into FSW's 2020 Online Show.

Diane is a Diamond Signature member of MSW, and misses everyone back home dearly.!

Judging a show is subjective and each judge brings his or her life experiences and knowledge to the table. In choosing this show, I was looking for pieces with strong compositions and a graphic quality that drew me into the painting. The second criteria that I was looking for was careful consideration to the colors in the compositions and how they worked together. I also looked for technical merit: did the artist achieve the desired effect and handle the water media well? The paintings that I chose for the awards were paintings that met the above criteria and that I was drawn to. I spent a long time with your creations, really taking in your artistic vision, thank you for sharing them with me. It is an honor to select this show and the awards.
