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.

The latest from our merry band of art enthusiasts. They were given a complex set of instructions for four different approaches to acrylic painting and each one did a fabulous job. It's such a privilege to see creativity pour from people when they're given the materials and a safe environment to play.

With a second Whatcom Artist Studio Tour behind me now, I can reflect and compare my total experience with the tour. This year's tour very consistent with last year's, which is a welcome relief. People are getting out and supporting the arts and finding my little corner of the world. A painting class was formed and eager new participants met. New paintings were created and that means new designs for the winter shows. Down time was used to create cards for upcoming shows and, back by popular demand, a 2016 calendar has been designed (wasn't going to do one this year) and will go to the printers today. See front and back cover below. I'd say the tour was very productive time spent and costs were recovered. Success!!

I've just listed four new sets of magnets on my Etsy site (see link in right-hand column). I figured if I was going to have to continue to contend with a metal post in the middle of my Bellingham Farmers Market booth, I might as well make it pay. It's working out great!

My exploration of oil painting continues. So very different from watercolor or acrylic. The joy is in the journey, right? These are done on 8" x 10" canvas board.

It's happening once again, the greening of the Ham. April showers have come early following our unseasonably warm weather of February. Hence, every tree is turning green. These acrylic paintings on Claybord are inspired by the spring greening.

March has always seemed like an in-between month...Still winter (finding me in need of warm cups of tea), but showing signs of spring and the promise of summer. These are two new watercolors I did last weekend. April and the beginning of the Farmer's Market are right around the corner. This will be my 15th season. I can't wait. It's my social life.
