This evening, 16 July 2010 from 4pm to 7pm, is the Port Orchard Art Walk. You can find me at Haute Salon on Bay Street next door to Mallory’s Picture Framing. My hostess, Katrina, is the BEST!! She is very friendly and accommodating and loves to have people come in to see my work! I will have my easel up and will be doing a demo surrounded by my originals and prints.

I just got back from Cannon Beach OR after dropping off 7 of my "Forest" oil paintings at Modern Villa Gallery! I'm thrilled to be part of that beautiful and vibrant community! And it's a beautiful drive down.

Had a day in the sun painting at Blue Willow Lavender Farm in Vaughn WA. Lots of artists came and the hosts were really wonderful and the fragrance!! I didn't paint the lavender but opted for the two charming little white houses on the property. This image is the Mother-In-Law's house.
