I could hardly wait to send out this newsletter to you. Guess what arrived in the mail this morning? The cover proof for my upcoming book Water Paper Paint, Exploring Creativity with Watercolor and Mixed Media! When I slipped the proof (shown above) from the envelope and held it in my hands, I got goosebumps.
Water Paper Paint is a project I have been writing and working on for over a year and is written for any creative person who wants to learn and explore watercolor. The book evokes the feeling of an artist's journal and is full of information, projects and inspiring visuals. It has nearly two hundred process and finished product shots photographed by my friend and artist Rachel Saldana and a gallery section I curated of paintings by contemporary artists working in watercolor. Water Paper Paint is being published by Quarry Books and will release January 1, 2011. And I am so excited to announce it is now available for pre-order!
