With big gratitude to DubSea Coffee, my show is over today. I got to hand a big check to WestSide Baby from the sales of six or seven pieces. Now I’m working on portraits and a 30-day challenge from Seattle Artist League (you can join, too!) I have new photos under the Painting and Drawing menu tabs. Thanks for looking.
My family celebrates Christmas, and it came early for me this year. An opportunity to show at a coffee shop/gallery in White Center! I have a lucky 13 pieces up for the whole of December. Show proceeds go to WestSide Baby whose mission is to supply equipment, diapers and clothing to children in need. Thanks to DubSea Coffee!
September 2021: working in two ways, outside and big. I’m painting in Kubota Garden, learning to see good compositions and work outside, and I’m painting a canvas that is 4×6 feet. Very big. The new stuff is under “paintings.” Thank you for looking; I always appreciate it.
I have new stuff on the Paintings and on the Drawings pages. Thanks for looking!

Loss and uncertainty are always with us. “With every breath we change,” says my yoga teacher. My latest painting is from a photo of a party that happened in the mid-1960’s, an event that may not be remembered by anyone alive now. Also – check it out – I added a Sale page. Thanks for looking, friends.
This Wednesday, June 9th, from 10-4 pm! Use this link to connect to any of the artists included.
May 24: I’ve added some new works to the Paintings section. Thanks for looking.
Poet Margaret Randall, was a student of Elaine de Kooning’s at the University of New Mexico. She recalls Ms. de Kooning encouraging her students: “Think big, paint big, be wedded to nothing, neither landscape, nor abstraction, paint nor stone.” And “abandon long practiced becomes skill.”
I have some new things to look at under “drawings” and “painting.” Abandon was practiced. Thanks for looking. Get vaccinated if you can.
Twenty new things to look at! Hope you’re doing well – spring is coming.
Doing lots of learning around colors: saturation (low & high), neutrals, and more. What colors do I like? What colors do you like??
