My painting, The Nature of Tools in The Best of Watercolor 2022, Special Issue presented by Artists Magazine and American Artist arrived in my mailbox today. I am grateful when my work is included and I must admit I am delighted with the category. My work has been called realist, still life, and surreal. So “Inspiration Everywhere” was all-encompassing and felt like a big warm sweater in winter. The icing on this cake was the Kandinsky quote for this particular category. When I am looking for inspiration; I study his work. So it felt both appropriate and somehow personal. I hope you pick up a copy and are as awestruck as I am by the work of my fellow watercolorists. Back to my brushes.
