Notes from the Staff... Review by Watercolor Artist

Find out why big risks can lead to even bigger opportunities for success and growth in the April 2011 issue of Watercolor Artist.Retired from academia and looking for a fresh start, Marilynn Derwenskus adopted a dramatically different format, putting her artwork on an exciting new path. Self-taught artist Joyce Hicks boldly took up landscape painting as a means to process the natural beauty she encounters on her travels. Karen Frey accepts a degree of calculated risk every time she picks up a brush, and Thomas J. Owen adds an element of surprise to his process with an abstract underpainting. You'll meet these risk-takers and more in our new issue, now available online.
