This week at Brush-Paper-Water...

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.

This week at Brush-Paper-Water...

Sitka I
watercolor, 20" x 28"
John Maslen

John Maslen's career has covered a lot of ground over the years, but through all he has pursued his passion for watercolor with a unique outlook, creating a lively body of work. I'm sorry that I didn't have a chance to talk with John when he received his Master Status in the Transparent Watercolor Society of America last year. His painting, Sitka I, deservedly won the Maurice Prendergast Award and definitely stood out from the largely realistic field of work in the exhibit.

Please jump over to Brush-Paper-Water for a look at more of John's work. I've posted a larger than usual number of paintings, for reasons explained there.
