Eruopean Street Scene

Good news! Two new galleries have accepted my work. Check out Cole Gallery in Edmonds and Gallery by the Bay in Stanwood, both in Washington.
This pretty little scene has its orgins in a trip we took to Italy last summer. Every Italian town has it's share of crooked streets and each more appealing than the last. Why is it we so want to know what's around that corner? This 12" square oil will be for sale at Kaewyn Gallery in Bothell, Washington in June. The gallery will be selling a whole group of 12" unframed pieces for some ridiculously low price like $148 beginning June 12th for one month.

More Mother's Day Art

Mother's Day Paintings

From the time I was a child, whenever I wanted to "give love" to someone, my first instinct was to make them a card, post
er, painting or some such arty thing. I made five separate paintings yesterday as gifts to all the mothers who were going to be at a belated Mother's Day family gathering, one of which is shown here. The day before that I made eight little paintings for all my best girlfriends. Remember this; artists need to create. It spouts out of them like a fountain. They might need the money from selling art but truly, money is never the reason for making art. Making art is the core reason for making art.
