Diane Schmidt's painting "Soothsayer" won the Joan Rothermel award at the 2013 American Watercolor Society Exhibition at the
Salamagundi Club in New York City.  The painting was selected for the 2013-14 travel exhibition and was shown throughout the
US for one year coincidentally ending at the artist's hometown Artcenter Manatee.  The center used her image for the banner to
advertise the exhibit.
