Here are a few pieces for my lastest show opening tomorrow November 7th at the Hardware Store Restaurant on Vashon Island. Come to the opening night reception from 6-9 PM Friday night. The show will be up the whole month of November. I am not going to be a part of the Art Studio tour this December as I don't have a studio yet but look for me next May when my new studio will be up and functioning.
I have to apologize to my blog followers as we moved this summer and still do not have internet at our new house. We should be up and running with wi-fi in a few weeks and then I will be back to regular blogging.
Just got from a quick trip to NYC and we had the best time! It was 12 degrees most days which made for this incredible snowy scene walking across the park heading to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It took me right back to my graduate school days. If ever there was a city I fell in love with- it was New York.
I am an artist living on an island in the pacific Northwest. For the past year I having been painting exclusively in oils, mostly on board but also some canvas. For a few years prior to this, I painted furniture with acrylics in a style reminiscent of art from Oaxaca, Mexico. For many , many years before that, I was a professional french horn player. Life circumstances made me choose to put my instrument down permanently and this blog is evidence of my creative spirit coming out in different form. I love the practice of daily painting and after all the years in classical music, daily practice feels essential to art as much as it did to music.
All paintings are sold unframed with an option for framing.
Contact me for more information or if you are interested in a painting listed in the archive. Some works are in galleries and some are still available. I try to mark what has been sold right away after a show.
