“The Lobster Shack,” watercolor, by Betty Ganley.

Great Falls artist Betty Ganley has been notified that her painting, “Fixin’ To Go Fishin’,” has been selected as one of the top 100 paintings to appear in North Light Publications book, Splash 15, the newest edition of the 15 books in North Lights Splash series. This series features the works of the top watercolor artists in the country. While nautical scenes as well as florals and still life feature high on her list of chosen subject matter, her current selected work features a typical Maine wharf-side still life, with nautical roping, buoys and lobster traps, bursting with color. Ganley, the recipient of over 75 awards for her watercolors, has had works featured in three other of the Splash series, and is the author of “10 Secret Gardens in Watercolor,” a book published by International Artist Publications.

Her next local exhibition, “Petals and Yachts,” opens April 4 and stays up through April 30 at Katie’s Coffee Shop in the Great Falls Village Center. “Petals and Yachts” features a selection of nautical and floral subjects.
