Last week I was honoured by receiving the Winsor & Newton Nordic Watercolor Society Award 2015! The association held their annual meeting at the Nordic House in Reykjavík where the award ceremony took place. I'm kind of speech-less by this. It really is wonderful to receive this kind of recognition for your work - it definitely gives me the boost to continue on this roller coaster ride it is to be an artist. My heartfelt gratitude to the Nordiska Akvarellsällskapet board & members.
Nervous me at the ceremony with the Icelandic board member Ninný.
Delighted me after the ceremony in front of the Nordic House.
Usually I use watercolors for my illustrations, but at the workshop I played with painting an imaginary landscape.
Then this little Stork was born the other day when playing some more with my watercolors. I think he's a friend of the pelican I did for the 2015 calendar.
