Looking for a break and a opportunity to learn?
Ok, this is a work in progress. We’ve changed the limitation to the show from 25 to all submissions. We will display one work per member at any given time. All submissions will show online but one work per artist will show at any given time. If you submit more than one work, we will replace any currently showing work with the new submission.

We all have our favorite watercolorists. Some for their color and boldness, others for their creativity and draftsmanship. Ralph Dunagin was one of my favorite CFWS watercolorists and I always looked forward to our annual show so I could see what Ralph was up to.
“His paintings, like him, were quiet, but spot-on in drawing and color combinations.” said Ken Austin, a long time friend and fellow artist.
Ralph recently passed and he and his talent will be missed.
His full sheet watercolors won awards each year.
Below is a selection of his work that appeared in past annual shows while he was an active CFWS member.
Ralph was a cartoonist for the Orlando Sentinel for almost 40 years. Read his story.
We invited our members to submit paintings to our online show and what a response. Originally planned to take this live on June 20th but since we are ready to go, WHY WAIT?
We are showing 25 paintings and will be rotating new work into the show every 14 days. If you don’t see your submission this time, check back June 20th, it will be posted. If you get rotated out, feel free to submit another. CFWS members with current dues paid for 2020-2021 Season are eligible.
Cudos to the committee: Diane Darnall, Janet Asbury, Jane Brinckerhoff and Mike Malloy.
