Joyce Faulknor

Joyce Faulknor leads a very busy life. In addition to running Gallery 2611 in Redwood City, CA with her business partner, Guy Magallanes, she keeps a very full workshop calendar, teaching at venues around the country. And their 13-part painting series Art 2 Art, which they developed and produced over the past year, will soon be aired on a local PBS station.

I met Joyce last summer at her gallery and subsequently have encountered her at various local art receptions. It's always a pleasure to hear what she is working on and to see her latest paintings.

Please hop over to Brush-Paper-Water to see more of Joyce's beautiful work and then link to her website from there.

This week at Brush-Paper-Water...

Madison Square Park, NYC
watercolor, 16" x 11"
Thomas Schaller

It came as no surprise to Thomas Schaller's fellow watercolorists that this painting was accepted into the 2010 American Watercolor Society show. Tom's move into fine art, after an illustrious career as an architectural designer and illustrator, seems like the most natural progression in the world, and his gifted handling of watercolor -- coupled with his clear love of his subject -- is getting well-deserved notice. It's been my privilege to get to know Tom through our online connections, and it's my pleasure to share his work with the readers of my blogs.

Please click over to Brush-Paper-Water for a peek at more of Tom's work and follow the link to his blog and from there to his website.
