My book Water Paper Paint is available for pre-order!

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I would soon be sharing my book cover with you. Well, earlier today the cover proof (shown above) for my book Water Paper Paint, Exploring Creativity with Watercolor and Mixed Media arrived in the mail, then I got so excited that I promptly put together a newsletter to subscribers. And now I'm thrilled to share it with you!

For those of you who may be new here, 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!


ps. I wanted to put exclamation points all over the place in this post but really had to restrain myself. :)
pps. Feel free to share the news.
