Contest Rules

In Laurelland, a “JUST-BECAUSE” is a HeArtfelt gift of appreciation, spontaneously felt and randomly bestowed. I will be hosting this series for a time....

This week’s “just because” honors Fine Art Watercolorist, MARSHA REEVES, whose impressionistic water Colour paintings take my breath away! Having had the opportunity to get to know Marsha thru FAA, her love of WATER lies not only in her Artistic fascination with the molecular suspension of pigment and movement within her wet-on-wet (mixing on paper itself) WATERcolour style but in her Intimate Career connections thru her teaching of Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Earth science) as well as her Spiritual connections to its healing, purification and symbolic metaphors. WATER literally F..L..O..W..S...THRU her Greater life Aesthetic as myriad reflections from her home alongside the beautiful waters of the Guadalupe River.
Marsha, I wish to let you know how your glimpses of exquisite Watercolours make me smile and enrich my life whether I see your work or whether I am blessed to receive a comment or visit filled with your Kindnesses toward my work. The contest logo, “It’s ALL in the Bubble” is the first Realization I had that I might just be a watercolorist...because I painted clear water onto paper and delicately infused colour, surrendering to ITS path...I offer it to you as student to the Master of the delicacy of wet on wet Art, Marsha.
It is in this spirit that I am returning the gaze to Marsha’s portfolio to offer this JUST BECAUSE SERIES: “WATER”.

Please join me in Visiting and giving “comment love” to MARSHA REEVES at her portfolio link below by copy pasting to view in the url above because links DO NOT REMAIN LIVE in the contest box:
