Catalina Island Sketchbook - Booklet

I was on Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California last winter for a week and filled up my sketchbook with watercolor and ink paintings.  From those paintings I created a booklet.

It will be on display at Annies Art and Frame  on Market Street Ballard, in Seattle on March 8, from 6-9pm where I will be showing my acrylic paintings of California.

Among Vines

From the archives: this mixed media painting, "Among Vines" is available for purchase.
It is a tripdych, botanical on canvas. Each panel is 36"x24".

Would look great in a hotel lobby, medical center or residence.

Newest Painting - Almost Finished

Acrylic on canvas - 48"x36".  Another interior.
This one is one of my largest yet but is going pretty quickly.
Love the way the morning sunlight came through the windows and created shadows on the table.

I've been busy painting for my show next summer in Port Townsend. For this show I am moving indoors and creating a series of interior spaces.  Working in acrylic on wood panel from scenes of my parent's old home and friends homes, it has been fun and challenging.

Here are a couple of works that are finished or nearly completed.

My Ballard Neighborhood

These paintings are on wood panel, 6"x6".

Mixed Media Botanicals

I am excited that I just sold one of my botanicals to a health care center in Pendleton, Oregon!  I love it when I sell my paintings to hospitals where they have the opportunity to touch someone who may be in need of some healing beauty.  There are over twenty of my paintings at Swedish Hospital in Ballard in the new emergency wing and I have heard from a few of my friends who had to make a trip there that they felt comforted by seeing my work there.

I plan to put my botanicals on a new website, but in the mean time I'll show some of what I have available here.  These range in size from 24"x24" to 36"x72".
