From the editor Rachel Rubin Wolf
“In the twenty years since the publication of Splash 1 in January of 1991, Splash has become a central watercolor gathering place. Here we can share the never-ending wonder and delight of watercolor together. Here we can inspire and challenge one another to press on, not just in watercolor painting but in life-finding the joy, beauty and love present in our lives, no matter what unexpected or difficult twists and turns we find ourselves navigating.
And as with our lives, Splash 11 is celebrating new directions. We recognize that we are in a new millennium, with new technology and new ideas coming at us from all corners of the globe. It is hard to keep up. Yet our new directions are solidly rooted in old, tried-and-true traditions of art and excellence. Many of the new directions the contributing artists generously share with us on these pages grow directly out of real events and stages in their lives.”
