I bought this car for my husband as a surprise to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the day we met in Port Townsend. Very cherry and completely redone on the inside with white leather. He sold it recently to a high school buddy. Sniff.

Had about ten pieces in the main floor gallery. This was a very fun September - October exhibit; there were quite a few characters, people and even dogs were dressed up as crows. Made some new and interesting friends.
Check out Earthenworks Galleries in Port Townsend and La Conner. I love Port Townsend, it's where I met my husband and La Conner is charming, we like to stay on our boat at the marina. Here are some examples at Earthenworks from my Idyllic series -- encaustic landscape blocks and also a clay ships figurehead.

In honor of the holidays I feel the urge to paint pomegranates. Here's an oil I am currently working on. Now the difficult, nit-picky part -- applying numerous glazes to each tiny pomegranate seed. A way off from being done, but it feels like a good start...
Today, a dear friend and I walked Bainbridge Island's Bloedel Reserve. We had the entire frosted landscape to ourselves. The swans were out, nestled amongst many ducks. We stopped at the main house to admire the Christmas decorations, pausing for hot cider in the library. Then off to the poetically lit birch tree stands. The day was lovely and we took many pictures which I hope will inspire future paintings. After that we met other friends at a Bainbridge studio where we paint each Wednesday and were so happy to catch up that we had two tea breaks!
