“The Watchman” by Lauralee Stenzel
15”x22” mixed, watercolor and colored pencil on 140# Arches hot press paper

Lauralee Stenzel has always enjoyed combining color, shape, and texture in her watercolor and mixed media creations. Her art is available for purchase at Riverwood Gallery and Brent Douglas Floral in EC.  

"I usually work on Arches cold pressed paper, but for ‘The Watchman’ I chose Arches hot pressed paper. I showed the effect of changing light on the color of the rooster’s feathers using a variety of dark valued pencils.  The background enhances ‘The Watchman’ with texture created with mid and light value watercolor. The title reflects the presence the rooster has as his role in the coop." – The Artist

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a letter.
