The Members Selection of local work was a watercolor by Brenda Beatty of St Albans, WV. This piece, titled "Minnie Bowers", is a portrait which is a well done watercolor for such a small format. The use of complementary colors is easy on the eyes, but it is the quirky composition that separates this work from more conventional pieces and demands our attention. And, though we don't know Minnie Bowers we can infer a lot from the sparkle in her eyes.
