Sandy Maudlin is one of the gems I've discovered in my blogging ventures. She is a fabulous artist herself -- always pushing her work to new boundaries -- and very supportive of other artists too. We live half a continent apart, but I think if I could walk down the block and meet her for coffee, I'd feel like we'd known each other for a lifetime.
I'm issuing another "wild card" for Sandy. Although she uses transparent watercolor in many paintings, she often paints on Yupo -- a slick synthetic surface that presents a novel challenge to a watercolorist -- and she also works in fluid acrylics as well as employing unusual techniques such as wax batik on rice paper. I invite you to see more of Sandy's work at Brush-Paper-Water.
