When North Carolina artist Paula B. Holtzclaw joined other members of the American Impressionist Society in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California in October, 2011, she painted near the Pacific Ocean. “Almost as soon as I began to record the beautiful coastline, the fog came rolling in!,” she remembers. “Once again nature gave me a lesson in adapting to what happens outdoors.” For more information, visit her website at www.paulabholtzclawfineart.com.
The September 2011 issue of SouthwestArt featured me and my studio.....and my constant companion "Timber", my "velcro" Golden Retreiver. This was such a fun interview to do!! My thanks to SouthwestArt.

"Peony Cascade" "Red Oleander"
"Honorable Mention" Award "Honorable Mention" Award
Blossom II~ Art of Flowers
Blossom is sponsored by The Susan Kathleen Black Foundation.
Flowers were a favorite theme of artist Susan Kathleen Black (1948–2000). The mission of the Susan Kathleen Black Foundation is art education. The concept of an international, juried art competition and exhibition, the purpose of which is to recognize creative achievement in current art with a floral theme, was a natural outgrowth of this fortuitous combination. My 2 paintings above were selected for Honorable Mention recognition and will be in the exhibition catalog and in the on-line exhibition.(Dates will be announced soon) Blossom II drew 2300 entries representing 1350 artists from 35 countries, so while not included in the top 100 finalists who will be in the actual museum tour, this award is still a tremendous honor!
