Dishes and the food that is served.

I'll be readdressing earlier subjects for the upcoming restaurant show.  Food,  and all sorts of food containers and utensils  and serving ware have always been of interest to me for their myriad of forms and decorative qualities. Plus color, color, color!  Save the date, Sept. 10 at Olive Marketplace Restaurant, Main St. Walla Walla.

Where to find cards and prints and Original Art

Every once in awhile I want to update information on where my work is available. Although I do sell out of my home studio, most people purchase my cards at Book and Game, Main St. Furniture, Sweetwater Gift and Home and Cougar Crest winery, all in Walla Walla. I ALSO HAVE PRINTS AT Main St. Furniture and Olive Restaurant on Main in Walla Walla.   I am planning my next show of
original art with some framed prints at Olive Marketplace Restaurant in September opening on the 10th of that month.  If you have any questions about buying anything, shows, or commissions, please do not hesitate to contact me at or  I am painting and drawing everyday possible, so there will be lots of new work for September.
I am getting an incredible amount of hits on this blog, so I hope that means people are enjoying my work, and want to know more.

Gardening with Friends

End of the year included the  ArtWalla Artsquared event and a new garden project where we are creating an entertaining area in the yard for lunches and dinners, away from passing traffic.  Then we'll add a dedicated vegatable garden space.
I intend to add a picture of the painting that recently sold at the Yakima Larson Gallery's Many Waters Exhibit of Walla Walla Artists.  This image is based on the the person in the 1997 Tulip Festival poster with a couple of new friends.

Art Squared event 6x6" original art at Cavu Cellars WW Friday Sept. 26 at 5 p.m.

Back to the drawing board, so to speak!   Each artist drops off a bag ful of small art for this event.  The best part for the citizens who attend is that they are all $36 each.  Since there are 80 some artists, and each puts up 10 original pieces, the choice available is remarkable and stimulating and confusing to some.  Hope you can attend if you happen to be in Walla Walla tomorrow night.  Cavu Cellars is at the airport, you can't miss it across from the main terminal. 

Just finishing up commissions and starting new work for a show this coming year downtown Walla Walla.  I look forward to seeing what comes out of this next few months. 

Larson Gallery in Yakima has five of my latest pieces currently on display through October 18.   Enjoy the Fall weather, and the 'last roses of summer'.''

Spring Release Weekend Art Event at Saviah Cellars

It's Spring, it's Walla Walla, and they are celebrating wine at Saviah Cellars and all over the valley during Spring Release weekend May 2-5th.  The wineries will have all kinds of things going on, including art events.  The pizza oven will be turning out tasty snacks for visitors and I will be there from 1:30 to 5 p.m.on Saturday the 4th of May to talk to people who like to look at paintings and enjoy tasting wine as well!  This collage of images shows the big pond they have created on the premises which is adjacent to the Walla Walla River very, very near to Stateline Road.  Their wines are among the best Walla Walla is known for.  Since Walla Walla means Many Waters, I have included a water picture in the collage as well as some Umatilla Native American motifs.  The Pendleton factory is nearby (about 40 minutes) and is visually awe inspiring with its room ful of bargain blankets that have small defects and all the perfect ones are on display too.  These blankets have inspired many artists including Dale Chihuly who collects them new and old.(The blog will not let me edit the above, it should say 'water pitcher', however, there is water in the picture too!  I have many subjects in this show most I have painted since October 2013 and some as recently as a month ago.  Enjoy life, it's a gift!
