Watercolor artists often create artwork for a variety of different people, but the work that they are most proud of is their work for the people that they know and love.
One of those people is my dear friend, author and journalist Amy Cuddy.
I spoke with Amy last week and she shared her story of coming to terms with her watercolor work.
It’s a beautiful story that we hope you enjoy.
