Welcome to my art blog.
This is where you'll find some of the things I'm trying to accomplish... a little of this and that. Paintings, photography, collage and sewing...every artful endeavor helps me keep my sanity in this mixed up world.

It has been a long time since I was a complete novice at some sort of art making. Recently, I placed myself in the position of "total newbie" when I joined an ongoing painting group and brought out my oil paints. Watercolor and acrylic have been my materials of choice for a good number of years, so working with slippery oil paint was a different thing altogether. I wouldn't say the result is where I would like to remain as an oil painter, but there were some things that I wasn't totally unhappy about. Long way to go.

On this Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving Day 2014, I reflect on what I have been blessed with thus far in my life. So Much. More than I deserve, for the most part. I vow to be a better steward of my gifts and share more with those who have less. Thanksgiving blessings to all.

It's been a month since the first weekend of the Whatcom Artists Studio Tour. Being my first year on the tour, I didn't know what to expect. I had hoped for 100 visitors and a few sales. The response surpassed those hopes, so I'm very pleased and will definitely participate again in 2015. Above are a couple of little original acrylic paintings I gave away in a drawing. It was so fun to art-speak for hours on end.
