Floral Paintings

I haven't done this type of floral painting in a long time. I did these in a recent Bob Burridge class. It was the same class where I did the landscapes shown in a recent blog. I actually had a great time doing the very loose florals and landscapes. What do you think?

Busy Time

I am going to be busy with shows for the next few months. First I have the Kirkland Art Studio Tour on Mother's Day weekend. I will be setting up in the gazebo at Phyllis Ray's home. Thank you Phyllis. If you want to come by, check the website at www.kirlandstudiotour.com for the details.

Next I have ten paintings showing at the Shoreline City Hall. They will be up from May through July.

In June I have a show at the Art & Cultural Exchange in Astoria, Oregon. My friend Barb Mallon connected me with the folks at this gallery near her home in Long Beach. Thank you Barb. There will be a cross section of my work, leaning a little toward the figurative.

In July I will once again show at Local Color in Pike Place Market. That is always a fun venue for me, and I am really looking forward to it.

I will let you know details for receptions at a later date.

Lisa Lamoreaux

I attended the C Art Gallery show yesterday with Nancy Thompson. Lisa Lamoreaux was who we went to see, but then we found Marissa Motto and a couple other artists that I knew. It is a nice small exhibit space. We had a lot of fun talking with the artists. We also watched Lisa sell three paintings to one customer in the time we were visiting. That girl is on a roll. Her paintings just fly off the wall. Check her out at Creative-Legacy.com. Her work is ethereal and just connects with me.

I bought a ceramic piece by Marissa Motto. It is something new she is doing, and I just love it. It has a matte finish and is less colorful that most of her work. I have several pieces of her other work, but this one is a wall hanging that I can put on my "Artist's Wall".


These are a couple of small landscapes that I painted in a recent Bob Burridge class. I just thought I would post them because they are different than any other work I have posted on this blog. I am off to deliver some paintings to Musings now, so will write more later.
