Welcome to My Neighborhood

November 21, 2017 § 12 Comments

My House and NeighborhoodLeft to right.  First is our house, next door are our neighbors who have three boys, a goat and chickens.  They cut wood on the weekends and we often buy the wood. Then you can see the Parrotia we planted that Tom is so proud of (the orange tree in the center of the painting). And finally, the pink house is the neighbor who waves when we pass and always have their blinds shut and flies Oregon Ducks flags on their car and outside their house on what I presume are game days.  Who could ask for more! I love my neighborhood.

Early This Year

Table Rocks are situated at low elevation in the Rogue Valley, so are most comfortably painted in the Spring – as you see here.  Now, as I write in July, it’s a very hot and dry place, full of rattle snakes.  It’s been a very busy year, so I’m just sharing them now.  Table Rock Early SpringThis could be the scene out of a Western movie.

You can kind of see Mount McLoughlin or Mount Pit – as the locals call it.

Turks and Caicos Islands

Sunshine – breeze – ahhhhhhhh.  Tom and I were able to take a great vacation to a Caribbean Island early in June.  I’ve never been anywhere like it and I can see why it’s so popular for vacations.  I’m about to get my yearly blood work back from my doctor and I’m guessing my vitamin D levels will actually be ok for once.

Besides the sailing, snorkeling, rum drinks, amazing tropical fruit and fish, one of the best parts of the trip was painting.

Project Space

Big News!

I’m teaming up with artist Megan Headley to open a studio/galllery in Talent, OR called Project Space.

Project Space logo

It will primarily be a teaching studio; Megan has Saturday youth classes lined up and I’m starting off with a foundational 10 week Still Life Drawing and Painting series. We will also be hosting art shows and lining up some community events.

We will open the location with an art show on Saturday and Sunday May 6,7 from 10 am  to 4 pm. The show, titled Becoming a Mother/Losing a Mother consists of abstract paintings by Megan Headley exploring motherhood and my still life and landscape paintings made after my mother died this past fall.  I’ve been exploring so many things, experiences, emotions and this work is almost like a diary or journal, much more so than any other work I’ve made in the past.  We’re both looking forward to sharing the work with everyone!
