While the Blogger was Silent . . . Art Life was Continuing.

A Busy Summer

Although I live in a rural, lightly populated area, our summers burst open with activities. I love gardening,

and hosting family; inspiring art making and

       horseback riding.

I fit in a trip or two as well.

And then came the  eclipse! We found a wonderful campsite (avoiding the 1 million predicted Oregon visitors) and beautiful meadow to view the big event in totality!

Art Entries and Acceptances

But while my day to day life was filled with summer distractions, the competition entries and proposals for exhibits were being looked at and contemplated. And last week, two pieces of wonderful news came in:

1) I will have a solo show at the Newport Visual Arts Center from November 3 through December 30.

This will be a show of my river series paintings including water, herons, and fish. I am so looking forward to see 20 or so of my river paintings all hanging in the same room!

2) Two of my paintings were accepted into the "All Things Salmon" exhibit at the Coos Art Museum.

I am totally honored and excited to have 2 paintings in this exhibit!
