Also this month, I have two small works in Palate, Palette, the latest show of Serving Masterpieces: Art at The Sisters Restaurant, in downtown Everett. The Palate, Palette, curated by the lovely Lyussy Hyder, is a wonderful show all about food! Great theme and I look forward to seeing the show! The Sisters Restaurant is located at 2804 Grand Avenue, Everett. They are open Monday through Friday from 7 to 4pm. Great place to have a breakfast or lunch and meet up with friends. The show runs from October 11th through November 1st, 2013. Check out this fun show from the artists palette to your palate!
I'm happy to be participating in Parklane Gallery's group show, Around the Block!This is their 4th annual juried show of exactly 12 x 12 inch work, including frame, from artists and photographers in the Puget Sound area. This is my first time submitting to this show. My entries are three of my pieces from the Wood Nymph series, Just Between You and Me, Lost and Found, and Snail Tales. These three are smaller works matted and framed in 12" x 12" frames. You can view all the work in the show on Parklane Gallery's online website here. Look for my three works close to the bottom.
Lost and Found, from my Wood Nymph and Other Curiosities series, is not a piece I get to show often. It's the only one from that series that I've painted, so far. The rest have all been done using graphite and mixed media on film. Revisiting it now, makes me want to paint more!
The 2013 Around the Block Show runs from Octobe 8th to November 3rd. The Artist Reception and the Kirkland Art Walk takes place Friday, October 11th, 6 to 8 PM. Parklane Gallery, 130 Park Lane, Kirkland, WA. (map) All work is for sale. Looks like a fun show! I'll be attending the Artist Reception tonight, hope to see you there too!
I'm an artist of fine art miniatures, but also create larger work. Although I've made art off and on most of my life, it wasn't until the late 80's that I had any formal instruction. I started painting more seriously and showing my work in the 90's. In 2006 I "discovered" the fine art of miniature and I love it. There is an enthusiastic and growing miniature art movement that I am happy to be a part of. On a personal note, I am happily married to Wayne for 32 years. My daughter Gina does mosaic work. We are happy that she has recently moved to the Pacific Northwest from Austin! The rest of my family live in FL and IN. When I'm not making art, or cooking, you'll find me with a book. I listen to audiobooks from my local library on my ipod while I work in my studio. I do love to cook, but having multiple food sensitivities I have to cook very creatively. In 2005 we moved from CA to the Pacific Northwest. We're still having fun exploring all the area has to offer and meeting lots of wonderful folks along the way.
