Celebrating + Watercolor Magazine Artists

Celebrating Mom's 70th birthday this weekend so no painting.

Jerry and I have been talking about selling some work through the blog. We'll see how that works and if I can figure out the PayPal button to put in to make it easy to buy.

I just got an absolutely fantastic magazine the other day - WATERCOLOR. The paintings in it and the description of techniques, etc. are wonderful. I highly recommend you go out and buy a copy. It has a great section of Winslow Homer's paintings and technique, too, with lots of paintings shown.

And check out to see some rich, dark, luscious watercolors that are scrumptious - by Deborah L. Chabrian (her work is on the cover, too).

Angela Bradburn's fruit and landscapes - especially the macro fruit - really made me want to see how she does that - check out her work at

That should keep you busy for a while looking at some masterfully painted watercolors :)

I saw the Watercolor magazine on-line and it is great. Thanks for sharing the info about the magazine and the artists.

Hope you do well with your marketing!

Thanks, Ann. This really is one of the best magazines I've seen in a while. Just about every single article was really great.

Thank you for the links.
As for the Paypal buttons, I figured them out last week. Just let me know if I can help.

Christiane, if I get back to trying to sell a few - and I might - I'll give you a shout and ask for help. Thanks!
