AWS = American Watercolor Society; NWS = National Watercolor Society; VWS = Virginia Watercolor Society. FAT EGO, lol, should need no introduction. The red form is an 'inka' (Jp) or 'chop' (China) considered a legal signature in China and elsewhere in Asia. Overlaid is my own brushwork signature.

For nearly four years of my life I was in a fraternity. Those were college days and I enjoyed myself. But by the time I was a senior I had outgrown fraternity life and created a small 'scandal' by being the first in my fraternity to relinquish my pin and de-activate. Never since has there been a draw to clubish membership societies...much less have I had the urge to advertise the same or place a title after my name!
