Artists’ Mailboxes the past few days have been a source of delight as Artists have discovered their new DANIEL SMITH 2009-2010 Reference Catalog amongst ordinary mail.  Our new DS Catalog will continue to be arriving in the mailboxes of everyone who is on our mailing list, so have You Got Yours Yet?  If it’s because you are not yet on our mailing list, then you can request a catalog on our website. 

This year we are “Honoring the Past” with Articles written by Artists acknowledging past Art Movements and Artists’ whose works have influenced Artists today.  We hope you will enjoy reading the articles by this years’ DANIEL SMITH Reference Catalog contributors.
The first one (page 6) is “California Watercolor, the National Context, and Why the Medium Continues to Matter” by Paul J. Karlstrom which you can also find already on our website.  The DS Catalog also has articles by Robert Amos writing about the influence of Canada’s Emily Carr (page 24), and Bruce Klein on Bay Area Figurative Painting (page 40) and its’ influence on his work.  Our Cover Artist Kristina Hagman whose Cover Print “Night” is part of a series of woodblock prints called “Thirty-six Views of Mount Rainier” is based on Japanese Artist Hokusai: “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” (page 88).  I will have an interview here in the DANIEL SMITH Blog with Kristina Hagman soon.
