Glenda Weibel

Watercolor Artist

Glenda is a watercolor artist who has lived in West Seattle for over 20 years. She comes from a family of artists and crafts people and has always enjoyed some form of artistic expression. She and her husband share their home with their Miniature Pinscher Dog who is “ten pounds of terror.”

Asked why watercolor is her choice of medium, Glenda states that, “I love the immediacy and surprise of watercolor. You begin with an idea and design and in the execution the medium will add its own contribution and exclamation points. To me, it becomes a three-way conversation between the subject, the medium and myself. Every painting is a new adventure.”

In addition to using watercolor on traditional rag paper, Glenda has also been exploring ways to free watercolor paintings from being framed behind glass. To accomplish this, she paints on archival tissue paper, mounts it on canvas and then finishes it with varnish. This technique maintains the freshness of watercolor, but eliminates the need for glass.
