FREE Paintings

Hello! Christmas is over and the new year is fast approaching. I'm thinking about art goals for 2023. One of my goals is to reduce my inventory of paintings on hand. 

To do this, I'm planning a painting-give-away through my website to those who would offer my paintings new homes - just pay for shipping. If you already receive my month-end email from my website, you saw this notice and may have already responded. If you aren't already on my email list:

1. Go here and subscribe. That will make your email address recognizable by my website. 

2. Next, send me an email ( with "yes, add me to your free painting notices." That will let me know to add your name to the free-painting notices list.

It will take me a while to go through my inventory and Collection of the Artist to decide what must go. I'll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, I continue to arrange and rearrange my new mini Studio. Today, between raindrops, we managed to move most of my flat files into the studio to replace the table you may have seen there before. Waiting for a dry day to bring in the drawers for the bottom flat file as well as all the beautiful watercolor and printmaking paper I forgot I even had.

The pastel paintings on the wall above the flat files are my next victims for rework. I have my second rework on the easel now.

"Winter Afternoon," pastel. First rework in the new Studio.

Also, today we delivered paintings to the Vashon Senior Center for a solo exhibit January/February 2023. 

Many thanks to Pamela Wickard, Volunteer and Program Manager for the opportunity to show my work.

More about other art news next time. Until then, HAPPY NEW YEAR! May all your dreams come true.
