This week at Brush-Paper-Water...

Bandits at 3 O'Clock
watercolor, 30" x 22"
Mike Bailey

I knew of Mike Bailey for years by name and reputation, but despite living in the same area, it was only recently that I met him in person. Mike's route to being an artist was not a direct one, but since he found his path, he has been incredibly intense and productive. He has received repeated recognition of his talent, and his high energy and engaging personality -- coupled with his masterful abilities as a painter -- also make him a very popular teacher.

Please jump over to Brush-Paper-Water for more of Mike's work, and link from there to his blog and website.

  3. Incredible... watercolors like this make me want to throw my oils away. Thanks, Chris, for another introduction to a brilliant painter.

  4. You pick the *bestest* watercolorists out there. Folks I've never known about, till you posted these lovely entries about them. Thanks, darlin'.
