Matchbox show at the Twilight

I finally broke away to get to see the show where I have a few pieces. The show is at the Twilight Artist Collective in West Seattle. Curated by the fabulous Jenna Colby. The venue was great, the shop had fun and functional art for sale, and the exhibit was great! There were a lot of cool artists that submitted their work. You may recognize Tiphoni's work (Teesha's daughter) and some other great artists. I tried to capture their signature labels as much as I could. (Click on images to make them larger).

From my archives

This is one of my favorites I created about a year ago. The bird cages are in the birds instead of the birds being inside the cages,,, I know,,, my twisted way of thinking about art! Our only cages are the self imposed ones we put upon ourselves. So I say,,, break away, be free.

Sketchbook project

Sketchbook project
I finished the project, yea! I always do the inside first covers last because I am never happy with them if I do them first by the time I finish the end. So, my technique is to do the first couple of pages last, then they seem to flow with the rest of the project. The next photo is the back cover. I used oil pastels and gave the background texture by adding squares of muslin while painting over it.

Painting on paint brushes...

I have been busy painting on some more paint brushes. I made some several months back and decided to make a few more. More to come later.... In my shop


We went hunting/searching for the perfect Christmas tree over the weekend. There is a place just about an hour from Seattle in Stanwood, that we love to go to. While I saw lots of brown mushrooms amongst the trees, I stumbled upon this most beautiful mushroom in the field under the trees. There were two of them, and only two, in the whole farm. Do you know what type of mushroom this is?
