Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW

Tara Hamilton takes first place at CHAL show

The Capitol Hill Art League asked its members to focus their creative efforts away from its home base on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The resulting work, in the November show, “Off the Hill,” spans geography and themes.

Tara Hamilton and Anne Shields, members of the Wednesday Studio, had work in the show.  Tara’s piece Waiting took first place. Congratulations, Tara!

The watercolor depicts a night scene in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The three boys are waiting on the street below for taxis to pull up to the restaurant. They hurry to open the car doors, hoping for tips.
