This week at Brush-Paper-Water...


Mellifera
watercolor, 14" x 21"
Guy Magallanes

Although we initially met through social networking, Guy Magallanes and I met in person shortly afterwards when I went to a reception at the gallery he and Joyce Faulknor owned. His ebullient, larger-than-life personality is clearly expressed in his watercolors -- from the closeups of bees in roses to the swirling colors of koi. I feel so privileged to have him as a friend -- his personal warmth and his passion for his work is wonderfully uplifting and contagious!!

This is a very special week for Guy -- the first episode of the 14-part instructional TV show that he has done with Joyce Faulknor will air on Saturday, May 8 at 9 a.m. on KCSM-TV, a PBS affiliate in the San Francisco Bay Area. Art2Art is a fun show, featuring the two artists painting the same images, but using different approaches. They are poised to start filming a second season and the show will go nationwide after that series is completed.

Please hop over to Brush-Paper-Water to see more of Guy's work and then link from there to his blog and website.
