New Paintings and Open Studio

I just added these two paintings to my shop:

"Fetching" is acrylic on a 9 x 12 inch wood panel and you can find it here.

"Emma" is oil on a 6 x 6 inch panel and you can find it here.

Also, tonight (Thursday, 2/12) is Open Studios where I have my studio and there is a lot going on not only at the studios but also the gallery and other shops below.  From 5 to 7 p.m. at Willamette Heritage Center 1313 Mill St SE in Salem, Oregon.

I will be in my studio, hope to see you there!

New Things

I felt it was time to shake things up a bit and make some new and different things.  I am exploring for the next couple of months, or so, abstracts of one sort or another on panel or paper or wherever inspiration takes me.

This time to experiment brought about a moving of furniture and decor in my studio.

(Quite grey outside, excuse the darkness.)

(Mapping the Garden paintings, two more to go.)

(Acrylic skin naturally adhered to the window.  Must make more of these.  Thanks to Corrine Loomis Dietz for the idea.)

I am sketching in paint in a journal.  Playing and finding ideas for paintings.

I also have a new new Instagram account.  Still learning how to use it, but I am getting there.

I still have some people paintings to post here, hope to do that soon.  Followed shortly by a few abstracts.

Thank you all for your visits, messages, purchases, and interest.  They are all truly appreciated.

Shop Update


I have added some paintings on paper, like the one above, to my shop.  I would be so pleased to have you stop in and take a look.

I will be back in a few days, or so, with a larger piece.  And following that I have plans to change things up around here in terms of how often and about what I post.  Will share more about that soon.

Open Studios

Hello all, sorry I've been so quiet over here lately.  It was a busy holiday season!  I hope you all had a lovely time and are enjoying the new year.  I am just popping in today to share the next Open Studio event tomorrow night:

Should be a fun and interesting night.  I think the Artist Talk is from 5:30-6:00.  I will be in my studio, say hi if you stop in.  

I will be back soon...promise...

Holiday Open Studios

Greetings all!  The Art Studios at Mission Mill, of which I am a part, is having a bonus open studio event this month in conjunction with the holiday light festival at the Mission Mill Museum.  You can visit the studios (for free) and, for $5, see the amazing light display.  I've been watching it go up over the last few weeks and it looks pretty amazing.

And if you want to see the studios but cannot make it to this event, not to worry we will have open studio events every month on the second Thursday of the month.
