Fraker/Scott Door Show

I have finally finished and delivered the four cupboard doors I have been working on for the Fraker/Scott Gallery "Doors" show in August. The two above were the last two and the top one was finished just yesterday and they had to be delivered today. Actually, I only found the fourth door a few days ago.

The show will be an interesting one and includes doors that were rescued during the demolition of Old Mill Town in Edmonds. Stop by if you can. More information about the show can be found at

ARTSplash is this weekend at ArtWorks in Edmonds. It is on the corner of Dayton and 2nd if you are interested in dropping by. This year I do not have my own wall. I just have one painting in the show because I did not have time to do the "whole thing". The painting is the yellow and green abstract landscape in my last post.

Don and I are driving to LaConner today. Unfortunately, for the first time, my painting for the auction at MONA did not sell. Boo! So, we are going to pick it up, visit the museum and galleries and have lunch. Should be a good day, and I hear that it is not supposed to rain. That would be a nice change. I must admit that I have completely given up on summer this year. Maybe next year!

New Images

While I am here I might as well post a couple of my new abstract landscape paintings. I think I am almost at the end of this series.

Edmonds Art Studio Tour

Wearing my co-chair of the Edmonds Art Studio Tour hat, I visited the studio of Tere Ryder and Gayle Ketzel yesterday. The tour part was to take pictures of their shared studio space. The main reason for the visit was to visit! It is so much fun to visit other artist's studios and see how they accommodate all the materials that they use in producing their work. Some studios are absolutely organized and others you wonder how they ever find anything, but they all manage to produce their artwork. If you are interested in seeing the Ketzel & Ryder Studio, check it out on I told them I would be posting pictures on that page, not on my blog! Also, you might want to google both artists to see some of their fascinating work. The best thing to do would be to visit their studio during the Edmonds Art Studio Tour.
