Robin Purcell

One year ago, I set myself the challenge to expand appreciation for watercolor. Encouraged by Robin Purcell, I began a watercolor showcase blog, Brush-Paper-Water, with Robin as my first featured artist. It has been a wonderful year, full of discoveries: new artists, new approaches to watercolor, and new friends. Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to a successful venture. Please pop over to Brush-Paper-Water to see a retrospective slide show featuring one painting by each of the 29 artists whose work appeared on the blog.

I'm looking forward to a new year of sharing watercolors by a whole new bunch of artists. And now I'm going out for a celebratory drink!! Cheers!!

  3. Chris, Happy New Year! What a wonderful job (and lots of effort on your part) showcasing other watercolorists. I was honored to be among them. I especially liked establishing a friendship with you this year. Lucky for me that we are in the same local area.
