I'm back again

Hello! I've been so active on Instagram (which links to Facebook) that I totally forgot about this blog and that it can still be accessed through Daily Paintworks and my website even if it no longer sends posts out to the subscriber list.So, I'm back and hope you are still there. 

Suddenly it is Spring 2024 and the new studio space I spoke of is complete just in time for the Vashon Island Visual Artists (VIVA) Spring Tour. It is always the first two weekends of May. One rainy weekend is complete and I look forward to next weekend and sun! I live in an area called Dockton so it seemed appropriate to name my new studio Dockton Art Studio. There are lots of artists in this area and many participate in the Tour. Below is what the studio looks like set up for Tour. At the near end is my big Hughes Easel and a desk. 


Remember " Cedar River Picnic" from an article in the Pastel Journal? Between COVID and our relocation, it didn't ever make it to galleries and shows and I was tired of looking at it so I unframed it, wiped it off with a Magic Eraser and hosed it off (because it is Wallis paper) to rework it. Between visitors to the studio last weekend, I worked on a couple small studies for the rework. The first study (below) has gone to Daily Paintworks Auction as my first auction piece in many years!. See the Auction.

I hope to be back here more often. Let's keep in touch!
