“Vivid Expressions” Solo Show at Urban Light Studios

Last Friday concluded my incredible honor of being the featured artist at Urban Light Studios during their last 2 Phinneywood Artwalk events.  The beautiful venue has been a long-loved establishment in the Greenwood community for weddings, special events, photograph shoots,  artwalks and many other occasions, so it was my great privilege to have a solo showcase in such a gorgeous setting  before they close their doors.

Live Paint at Nectar Lounge!

I’ve been working on a very large oil piece the past few months and decided to take a break this last Monday for an evening of live painting at Nectar Lounge during their weekly Mo’ Jam Monday event.  What a fun evening!  I had not previously been to Nectar Lounge (located in Fremont), nor knew anything about the Mo’ Jam Monday sessions (basically an open improv jam session), but after an invitation from a friend, I decided to change things up for the evening.

Checking Back In…

I realized it’s been a while since I last shared a little about what’s been going on in our world – just over a year, in fact! Much has happened since my last written post. Granted, I’ve still been painting and sharing my new works as they’ve come into existence; however I haven’t actually taken any time to sit down and write. Just wanted to “officially” check back in!

Live Paint at the WFF Fundraiser


Tuesday evening, I had the privilege of doing another live paint event for the Wildland Firefighter Foundation Fundraiser in Sacramento.  The charity event was held on the grounds of the old decommissioned McClellan Air Force Base at the Lions Gate Hotel, an area I had never been to prior, but very much enjoyed getting to visit.  The area itself is much tucked away from the rest of the Sacramento metropolis and has been lovingly cared for over the years, so getting to drive through all the little neighborhoods of old officers’ housing (many of which are still lived in today), was like going back into time.  Here, honor and courage are met with respect and pride – a way of life and a motif that carried into the evening’s event as well.

Sun and Paint


So, it’s been a little while since I last checked in…who would have guessed that gallivanting around the Pacific Northwest for a month would have had me so distracted by family, food and fun that actually sitting down to write had slipped my mind for a while?!  Ah, such is life!  What can I say?  It certainly was a lovely last couple of weeks up north with all our many adventures.  The past few weeks alone we celebrated my dad’s birthday, my mom’s birthday, explored the town of Edmonds, trekked out to old Fort Vancouver and adventured up to Victoria B.C. for the day.  We also finally got to enjoy some beautiful spring-like weather during the last weeks of my stay, with all of the trees starting to blossom – definitely stirring my creativity (along with my allergies!)  I actually picked up some painting supplies earlier during my stay in the hopes of getting out to paint sooner; however, we also had a significant amount of wind along with our sunshine, so things hadn’t been ideal for a plein air session until towards the end of my visit.  However, I did finally get to break out my new supplies.
