This week at Brush-Paper-Water...

Low Tide, Oceanside, Oregon
watercolor, 8" x 8"

Susan Abbott

Susan Abbott's "Dream Table" still-lifes will likely be familiar to readers of Watercolor Artist magazine and The Artist's Magazine from recent articles on her work. But she is also a prolific plein air painter who posts almost daily on her blog "A Painter's Year" and spent 15 months cataloging her travels through Vermont with wonderful sketches and fascinating history on her blog "Let Me Show You Vermont."

I don't remember how I came across Susan's work, but I admire it tremendously -- her still-lifes are fabulously detailed and very fresh and her landscapes are colorful, lively depictions of the world around her, whether at home or traveling the globe.

Please pop over to Brush-Paper-Water to see more of her work and link from there to her website.


  1. The water like a glass does not require painting. You paint surroundings and viola the water pops up. Absolutely delicious and fresh piece of Art. Serenity and Peace! Thank you Susan and Chris, Irina
