New Work Now Showing!

My most recent project, a grid of twelve, 12" x 12", paintings, entitled "Aviary"  is now showing at the Women Painters of Washington Gallery (701 5th Ave., 3 level, Seattle WA) in the Columbia Tower Bldg.  I was a nervous ninny about hanging a grid, but it was easier than expected.
I do hope you can stop in to see the show.   This is the WPW Members Spring Exhibition, so you can see an abundance of fantastic art!

One of Mom's passions.

I just finished  a "lyttle" project in the studio....I completed a 12 piece grid of 12" x 12" paintings.  It was great fun to do!
One of my earliest memories  was going into the aviary  with my mother.  She raised parakeets and canaries (along with 4 kids, dogs, sheep, horses and a few other critters).  The aviary  was just outside our back door and occasionally I was invited to go in with Mom....a very special deal for me!   The flutter, chirps and happenings of the birds always so impressed  me.  Mom even showed me how to get a bird to sit on my finger...wow!
So, this grid is a tribute to one of Mom's passions..birds.
Here is one of the pieces.

(I've used cockatoos instead of parakeets because I like to draw/paint them (artistic license).

Rain, rain, rain!

It's no surprise, but it's raining like cats and dogs (or should I say "Cougs" and "Dawgs")  here in Seattle.  We're experiencing a "Pineapple Express" storm straight from Hawaii....warm and wet, wet, wet!
Anyway, I thought it would be a good time to post another recent painting, entitled
"Fall, Float".  
Now I need to venture  out and  check the drains to make sure they aren't clogged with leaves!
