This book is a sampling of the watercolor works of John Norman Stewart done over the past 30 some years. It is divided into three segments: Realism, Abstractions and People. The selection of art in the book is based on John's own favorites. If it brings a smile to the face, or posts a question or evokes a memory, then it has done it's job.
