Today’s WOW! is irrefutable proof about how artist Elinor Carbone not only masters watercolor techniques but feels passionate about it. As Ellie says:

“Watercolor painting and art in general offers me many rewards and I paint as often as possible. Watercolor’s exciting qualities – its freshness, immediacy, and spontaneity – are what also makes it the most challenging painting medium.”Elinor Carbone

One of her pieces was recently selected, among thousands of applicants, by L.L.Bean to be exhibited in their Freeport, ME location
