Watercolor Quote



I am so pleased to have an artwork published in Lesley Riley's new book called Quotes Illustrated.  The quote was given to me by Lesley and the quote definitely resonates with me.  Love it.

I have not received my copy of the book yet, but I am eagerly awaiting it!  I think it would be a nice gift for an art or quote lover.

Here is what the description says,
"QUOTES ILLUSTRATED by Lesley Riley is a timeless source of inspiration and motivation. Through the diverse and eclectic work of over 90 artists, familiar and some not-yet-discovered quotes are brought to life.

It's an eye-opening experience to see how these talented artists interpret modern and age-old wisdom. To quote Georgia O'Keefe, "Art is not what you see,
 but what you make others see." And therein lies the magic of this book - it expands your awareness, so that you see, not only with new eyes, but come to understand how art can illustrate and illuminate more than words alone can express.
100 quotes were carefully chosen by Lesley to create a positive book that moves the reader to take action on their dreams. If the quotes alone don't do the trick, the artwork certainly will. Artists were free to interpret their quote in their own way, with their medium of choice.
The book includes wonderful examples of digital art, art quilts, fiber art, mixed media, collage, assemblage and paintings. There is something to delight all tastes. Artists in particular will find this compendium a source of ideas and techniques for their own art. While it's not a how-to book, information on materials and techniques used are provided for each artwork."
