It's been an interesting month here in the soggy Northwest. I don't have any images of new work to put up yet, but they'll be coming soon.
November was an eventful month. I moved into my fantastic studio and was promptly flooded by torrential rains. My artwork survived intact, but the walls are now splotched with mold where the water came streaming down. Not one to be deterred, I had a rewarding open studio, in which one of my favorite pieces found a good home.
Back on the East Coast, the Cornerstone Gallery featured one of my new pieces in their "Art to Go" fundraiser.
Also, I've been chosen to show in the Blue Heron Gallery next October. I'll share the space with a painter from Portland, OR.
That's it for now, but I'll be posting images soon.

New Digs

Great news from Vashon. In just over a month, I will be moving into a studio at the historic Harrington-Beall Greenhouse Complex. Most of the greenhouses are in ruins-- pierced through with blackberry and alder... glass ragged... wood rotting... my kind of place. My studio will be in a restored greenhouse. It's big and well lit. I look forward to returning to larger format oil paintings... and, of course, poking around in the ruins.

Out Here on the Perimeter...

For those of you who are wondering, I've been out of the internet loop for the past few months. I am in the process of relocating my life and studio to Vashon, WA. The island allows me to live and work in a rural setting but remain within reach of the vibrant, urban atmosphere of Seattle. New work is in the making, and I'll try to keep updating despite the unsettled nature of my life. In the mean time, enjoy the above view from the door of my cabin.
