Jane Freeman and I have walked on the same paths for several years, just not within sight of each other. Sometime last year, we began corresponding online and have developed a very nice friendship over the past months. In addition to creating a good number of astonishingly detailed watercolors every year and winning awards in many national shows, Jane has written the book A Celebration of Light (North Light Books) and has been the catalyst for several online art groups, serving as an editor at artcafe.net for five years and as a contributing editor at the worldofwatercolor.com for three years. She is also the creator and administrator of the Facebook group, Artcolony.
