"In The Red" - Lynnwood Library Show

Small Work, Acrylic on Gessobord, 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"

I just got word that my painting, Garden Gnome, Contemplating His Latest Work has been chosen to be in the annual themed show, In The Red - Juried Art Exhibit at the Lynnwood Library Gallery.  Forty-three artists will be in this exhibit. I noticed a few familiar names on the exhibit list that are art friends of mine.  Congratulations to Eden HopkinsNaoko Morisawa and Susan Jones! I'm looking forward to this fun show and am happy to be included!

The show runs from September 26 – November 17 at the Lynnwood Library Gallery, 19200 44th Ave W, Lynnwood, WA.   Three winners, chosen by the Lynnwood Arts Commission for prize baskets, will be announced at the reception and awards ceremony on Saturday, October 1 at 11am - 12pm at the library.  I'll be attending and hope you can make it too!

Just a quick update to let you know I have been creating new work!  I have three new miniatures that I will be posting soon.  They are in the varnishing stages now and once dry, will be scanned.  It's been a very busy summer.  I have taken some time away from my studio to do some "research exploring" by hiking some of the beautiful trails around here, gathering reference photos.  There are so many exciting places to discover and I need to take advantage before the weather changes.  It's also a great way to clear your head and make room for new ideas and allow images to come forth.  To me, taking a hike among the forests and rivers is a way to connect with the spirit. As always, I thank you for taking the time to read about my work and hope you will retun.
