LOCAL ARTIST TAKES TOP AWARD AT SAN DIEGO WATERCOLOR SOCIETY'S MAY SHOW, CULTURAL EXTRACTION

 
May 16, 2012 (San Diego) -- La Mesa resident Chuck McPherson took the First Place Award at the San Diego Watercolor Society's May Member Show.  His painting, The Judge, is of a very special person in his life. 
 
He explains: "Judge Earl Cantos was the patriarch of a wonderful family that "adopted" me a few years back. I'd been best friends with his daughter and her husband who invited me to the Judge's Kensington home one day as she needed to check on her Dad who was showing, at 88, the symptoms of Alzheimer's.
