This week at Brush-Paper-Water...


White Orchids, 20" x 14"
watercolor
Genie Even

Genie Even and I first crossed paths here in the San Francisco Bay area a few years after we both went back to watercolor. I stopped in to see her work at the annual Open Studios and was astonished at the exquisite details and the clarity of her paintings. We both became active in the local watercolor society and participated in numerous exhibitions over the years. Genie's work always raised the bar for everyone else in the organization, so I was very sorry to see her move away. It's been a pleasure to see her work in the various national shows and know that she continues to get recognition for her wonderful work.

Please pop over to Brush-Paper-Water to see more of Genie's paintings and for a link to her blog.
