This week at Brush-Paper-Water...


Peony,
watercolor, 22" x 13"
Solveig Rimstad

Solveig Rimstad is one of the gems to come into my life because of social networking. The precise details of how we met are no longer clear in my mind, but we have formed a wonderful friendship over the past year. Solveig is an amazing artist who expresses her talent across a wide range of genres -- from portraits to landscapes to florals.

You can see a sampling of her paintings at
Brush-Paper-Water, and I encourage you to jump from there to her website for a more comprehensive look at her work.

  11. So ridiculously good!

    It almost makes me embarrassed to say I paint in watercolors because mine sure don't look like that!

  13. PEONIES LINE OUR DRIVEWAY GROWING UP. THAT WAS 73 YEARS AGO. I MISS THEM AND THOSE WONDERFUL YEARS. IT A LITTLE BIT SAD TO GET OLD. LIKE A PEONY THEY BRING US THROUGH SPRING THEN BING AND BANG THERE'RE GONE.
