  1. Gracias Konstantin por permitirme la experiencia de conocer a los grandes de la acuarela. Por Ustedes esta técnica gana reconocimiento a nivel mundial. Felicidades en el 2014.

  2. Hi Konstantin,

    Linda Baker sent me your interview of her. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it and am very glad to know of your site since I found other friends such as Keiko Tanabe (I sometimes frame her work), Mark Mahaffey,Kathy Conover, Linda Doll and others. I too had a piece in the Shenzhen Biennial (next to Janine Gallizia) and appreciate all the photos you took. I was supposed to go with Linda Doll, Linda and Kathy but could not make it so your photos really give a great feeling of what the show looked like.

    Anyway, congratulations of such a great blog site and all the great interviews. Love your work too. I will check in from time to time.
