I’ve created a new video/slide project
with a few of my 2014 paintings. They’re primarily landscapes in oil and acrylic, and show moods of Eastern Washington

In the Seattle area around the holidays, the Christmas ships make an appearance all decked
out with their shining lights. There’s singing, hot cocoa, bonfires and a lot of good spirit.
“Starry Starry Christmas

interesting request and a fascinating woman!
Deb Bridge an English professor since 1985 at Mount Royal University in
Canada contacted me this year about using one of my paintings as a tattoo. Recently she sent a photo of the results!…
Deb got her first tattoo while visiting Ireland in 2011 when she was 58. Now she has eight
of them, and it’s really fun to know my artwork is included. Here’s my vintage watercolor painting "Passageway"
and her tattoo with an altered background.
A sweet story…
Friday evening at the Fall Wine & Art Auction, this couple became
the owners my painting. They will be celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary this week. The husband bought the painting
as a gift for his wife. They said it would be displayed at their table during the anniversary celebration when they renew
their vows. How lovely is that!

with the east coast and the devastation of hurricane Sandy, but for people that live there it’s hard to know where to
