Joan Sandford-Cook
Joan hails from England and is not only a good artist but also quite a teacher. She always has some sketching and painting to show us, and she teaches all kinds of media – watercolor, pastel, pen and ink – you name it!! I love the travelogues of her part of England when she goes on a day trip. I always look forward to reading her blog.

Pablo Villicana Lara
Pablo doesn’t post often, but when he does you will be enthralled by his paintings - full of deep, rich color and vibrant sunlight and inspired by his cultural heritage. His portraits are spectacular!
You will be hard pressed to find a better watercolorist anywhere.

Gaylynn Robinson
Gaylynn doesn’t blog frequently, but when she does she will have something intriguing, uplifting or educational to talk about. I met Gaylynn at an art show where she was standing in front of my painting. When I walked up she introduced herself and told me that she admired my work and she frequented my blog. I was so excited – I had just met my first “bloggerite”!
Since then she has joined GCWS, taken one of my workshops, and we have seen each other frequently at other art venues and she has become a true Blog Friend!!!

Deb, thank you for the shout out! I am honored to be called one of you blog friends and always look forward to seeing and learning from you. Now if I could just bottle your gift of humorous writing :-) June is around the corner..see ya soon.

What a sweety to mention me in your list of favourite bloggers. Love what you said about me - by the way lots of my teaching revolves around acrylic work and is quite dominant in my exhibition work because it can dry so quickly for a show!! Much appreciated - hope it means I hear from some new art bloggers to me so I can visit their sites.

By the way Debs, my surname is spelt SANDFORD-COOK - no one will find me without my middle 'd' and hyphen!! Love what you do for others - such a kind heart.

Gaylynn - you were my first "bloggerite" and hold a special place in my heart!!!
Joan - I'm so sorry I miss-spelled your name - will attempt a quick correction (as a friend of mine says "no good deed goes unpunished") Here's hoping lots of others find your blog to view your lovely work and tales of your travels in England!!
