I am pleased to present the work of Carolyn Lord. Carolyn needs no introduction to most watercolorists -- her work has been featured in many books and she has exhibited widely over the years. In corresponding with her, I found myself in complete agreement with her philosophy, which she stated in this way: "I suppose the thing I want folks to think about is that their own life is enough. Travel is nice, but that isn't what makes a successful career, to have paintings of far-flung places. Being stuck at home forces one to dig deeper."
Please hop over to Brush-Paper-Water to have a look at Carolyn's work.
