This painting was inspired by the  bright sun breaking through the clouds and making its wondrous mark on a craggy pine trunk, just after a spring rainstorm. I was walking in my neighborhood when I observed this miracle, which became the subject for my "Breakthrough" painting. Juror Doug Lew liked the painting well enough that he accepted it into the Fall Membership Show of Watercolor Art Society-Houston in October, 2003 and he gave it an Honorable Mention award.

Juror Catherine Anderson accepted "Breakthrough"  into the California Watercolor Association 37th National Exhibition. It was on display at the Academy of Art University Gallery, 410 Bush Street, San Francisco, CA., during the CWA Exhibition in April, 2005. This painting represents a significant breakthrough in my own artistic growth.

I proudly display "Breakthrough" on my business card and on the front of my brochure.
