Response to Requests Cards and Posters

Thanks for your interest in my cards and posters.  I have 3 retailers in Walla Walla.
Book and Game, Inc. 1st and Main, has the largest selection of cards.  Sweetwater has cards and posters, and Main St. Furniture has both as well, and the cards are packaged in groups of 4 rather than sold singly.
Whitman College, Farmers' Market, Downtown scenes, onions, bicycles and many other Walla Walla subjects are included in the selection of images that these stores sell.  There are about 12 different poster subjects currently.  The retailers do not have all 12.  You are welcome to contact me for special orders.

Northstar Winery February and March

Northstar WineryI am bringing art to the walls of Northstar Winery starting January 29, which is the day of their January Vintage Experience.  The work will be up for 2 months.  I will be making this a dynamic exhibit by hanging one group and then steadily changing, adding and removing pieces through out the February and March time period.  I will bring some of my Art About Food work to this venue as many people who enjoy good wine also cook and enjoy exploring the restaurants, cafes and bistros that are in Walla Walla.  

I will add more new work based on my current interests that have arisen from some of my recent subject matter and also some new landscape works along the way.  My next new group will go to Prosser in April, to Thurston Wolfe Winery in their Wine Village.  This is a great spot next to Yellow Rose Nursery and very near downtown Prosser.  The Village has several interesting wineries and a great restaurant.  A fun area to spend the whole day!

On the Wall

Two mixed media 24 in. watercolor, Pastel and and acrylic, about recipes for apples and the famous Walla Walla Sweets, and a 20x32 inch. pastel on the subject of Olive Cafe itself, as seen over a cup of coffee and a pastry, looking through the front door.
Love the brick wall.  There are 27 pieces on view through the end of the year.  The theme is mainly 'Art About Food', and includes Farmers' Market designs and areas in Eastern Washington where people's lives depend on the land and water seen in the sketches and paintings.

Art Squared Happened

I think this was one of the biggest nights they have had in the 3 years they have had the event.  Lots of new faces and many commented on how enjoyable it was.  After getting all my show work up for my opening on the 13th at Olive, I learned that the show was going to go to Christmas, so finished two more, then dove in to the 6x6's.
Here are a couple that were sold by ArtWalla Sept.26.  There were over 80 artists and at 10 each, over 800 artworks and I think as many people were there that night.!
(probably a slight exaggeration).  It was a great crowd, music and food, and wine from Cavu Cellars who donated their old airplane hanger space which has been completely refurbished and perfect for all the art and lots of folks.  Thanks Cavu and Thanks to tireless people at ArtWalla, who put the spotlight on artists every year with this outstanding event.

New End Date for Show At Olive

I am pleased to say that Olive has asked me to extend my show through the end of the year.  I have added new work already and will have some more in the studio, new and ready to hang when spots open up.  The restaurant that is open daily from 8 am until 9 pm  daily.  The people that work there have an amazing variety of duties and talents.  It's been a pleasure to go there so often now and witness how active and upbeat the place is, how good the food really is, how beautiful the desserts and other showcase selections also are.  I will never run out of subject matter!  All the staff are nice and seem to enjoy their jobs.  It's fun to watch all the bustle and activity in the open prep areas.

  Hope you can go in and have a bakery treat, a pizza, a salad, soup or some one of all the many items on their dessert menu.  And while you are there, enjoy the artwork, too!

Art about Food

Food is many things to me, memories of fun trips and flavors and styles of service.
I am working on diverse styles and using various media.
I am also just getting ready to make a postcard and information mailer for the September show.  Watch for that on this and on my Facebook page soon.

This image is Acrylic, based on a happy Sante Fe memory.  I am also doing still life set ups with dishes and food from our kitchen, finding so much beauty in just depicting the forms and colors.  I have combined pastels, acrylic, watercolor and anything else I have on the table to acheive a realistic result and then collage the images into a composition that pleases me.  These hot summer days actually serve to keep me working in the studio.
