It's Sunday. I haven't been painting - just wrapping, unwrapping, visiting, leaving, eating and more eating!
So it's time to share a few new followers I've gained.
Vicki Greene is an outstanding artist with a heart as big as her largest paintbrush (and then some). She has created her blog called Garden of Weeden and she does give-aways and shares WIPs and is a member of WatercolorWorkshop (where I became friends with her). You will find some lovely work over at Vicki's blog and you may sign up and win one of her monthly give-aways. But even if you aren't lucky enough to be a winner there, you will win when you see her work. She is dedicated, careful and must have the patience of a saint!! Lots of layering and slowly building up colors in watercolor to make them shine. I am the proud owner of a few of her pieces and they are amazing - and she works behind the scenes at WatercolorWorkshop, helping the large group run without a hitch.
Another brand new follower is from Paris, France - can you say ooo la la! Her paintings are outstanding and I'm glad to learn about her. So stop on over to visit
Dominique Gion at http://dominique-gioan.over-blog.com/ and see her work. I couldn't get Microsoft to translate the French into English for me but maybe you'll have better luck - or maybe you speak French so you can spend time reading as well as looking!
Although I didn't find a blog for her, I also want to say hello to my friend, Sue Drennan. Sue has grown in the years I've known her through WatercolorWorkshop and her work never ceases to give me a smile and feeling of pleasure that I have watched her watercolor journey and I've seen how far she's come. She is creating wonderful work that should be promoted more - but I guess you'll just have to hop over to WatercolorWorkshop (a Yahoo group created by Susie Short) and join in the fun to see Sue's work. Sue is not only a fine artist, she is one of the moderators behind the scenes at WatercolorWorkshop who helps the large group run smoothly.
I hope you'll take a moment or two to visit the blogs listed and see some new art!!
