Two-stop shopping at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Washington state. Who knew?


A new look for Spring!

I hope you like the new look. I decided to not only clean up my studio, but also spruce up my blog! What do you think?

Honor thyself...clean thy studio!

SHHH...don't tell!

This IS the place to be in the Pacific Northwest to experience art, see art, buy art and learn how to create art. Take my word for it...I work there!

I miss you Dad...


Gone from this earth for eight years, but NEVER far away from my heart...I miss tuna out of a can with you on days too rainy to fish.


Wonderful video about the power of making something from nothing

Restores my faith in humanity and our future generations...

Awesome April!

I have just seen the book,"The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed", and it is awesome! I could NOT put this book down. Beautifully done, thoughtful, insightful and visually rich! Be prepared to set aside some quiet time away from all distractions when you finally get your hands on this book!

The author, Seth Apter, will be visiting Bellevue Art & Frame on May 5 for a book signing, along with a few of the featured artists. I will also be there...

The original art of mine that is featured in this book, "Marilyn", will be on display in April and May at the lovely Fraker/Scott Gallery in downtown Seattle (Pioneer Square). Come on down to the First Thursday Art Walk this Thursday, April 5, from 5-8 pm!

I hope to see you at one or both of these events!
