Pam Allen - Artist

Wow. I just returned from First Friday in Fredericksburg, VA, where I take pictures for the FCCA. Well, I just discovered this wonderful artist who paints with watercolor on yupo paper, which is a synthetic waterproof paper. This allows her watercolors, inks, and acrylic mediums to pool and bead on the surface of the paper before drying. One benefit, however, is that if a mistake is made, you can easily run the yupo under water and wipe it off with a towel even after the paint has dried. Please visit Pam Allen at her website and see some of the beautiful images she creates. Unfortunately, the computer screen cannot begin to capture the depth of color and emotion of one of her large 20"x30" paintings.
