Snoqualmie River Arts Tour

I will be hosting an Open Studio as part of the self-guided tour of the Snoqualmie River Arts Tour.  Fall City Arts is sponsoring this event with help from 4Culture.  Come see my treehouse studio and gallery!

The hours are 10am – 6pm, Saturday and Sunday on June 21 & 22.

Everything you need is on the website,  There is a Googlemap of the studios on the website as well as a gallery of all the artists.

Here is a quote from the Snoqualmie River Arts Tour: “Meet artists in their Open Studios, see the region’s galleries and art-friendly businesses while you enjoy the scenic byways of the Snoqualmie River Valley. This is a unique opportunity to see the creative spaces that produce some of our most accomplished local art. This year the tour lands on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year; So there will be plenty of light to see a wide variety of art.  Plein air paintings, monumental stone carvings, unique metal sculptures––you will encounter a wide variety of quality work on this trail of discovery through one of our region’s most picturesque rural landscapes.”

Red Begonias 14″x11″ oil on linen
Just finished a 3-day flower workshop with Michael Klein at the Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio.  We worked in all natural light – no studio lights on the easels, no lights on the flowers except what was coming in from the windows!  It was great fun learning how Michael works – back to front, starting with the background and laying the flowers on top.  Painting flowers feels like plein air painting –  you have to work fast because the flowers will wilt throughout the day.  These begonias were actually potted so I wasn’t too worried about them dying.   However, I must say that leaves DO rotate toward the light throughout the day which makes blocking them in a real challenge.  I love flowers!
