You’re Invited to a Summer Soiree!

Please join me at Gallery Mack on June 22nd for a Summer Soiree! Meet the artists! Jewelry! Sculpture! Woodworks! Paintings! I have several new small works at the gallery, ranging in size from 8×10 to 7×14. Do you have a space for a tiny painting? Think about where you’d like to hang a painting in your house and measure the space before you come. I have been very busy in the studio this spring. Talk with me about your interest in art. What kind of paintings do you like? Summer soirees are fun. You can meet others with the same interests as you. Gallery Mack has some fabulous artists and they will be there to talk with you about their work. Drink a little wine and enjoy the evening! Gallery Mack is located at 2100 Western Avenue, Seattle, WA, one block north of Pike Place Market on Western Avenue. See my painting on the card below? It’s the top left corner and it’s called, Spring’s Green. Hope to see you on Saturday, June 22nd!

Skagit Valley Plein Air Sketches

It was a scorcher last week in the beautiful Skagit Valley of Washington.  Temperatures in the upper 90’s on some days kept us scrambling for shade.  We painted in the early misty mornings and later in the afternoons, with hopes of capturing the warm light and distinctive shadow shapes of the low-to-horizon sun.
