Trying not to get behind with all that is happening. Getting ready to head for Savannah for the American Society of Aviation Artists Forum. I'm excited about the workshops and presentations, and I'll be teaching a drawing class with some fellow aviation artists to a group of middle schoolers at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum. But first, on Saturday, I'm doing an oil painting demo at the Sequim Museum on Cedar St. They have a great show of Sequim barns on display. So I'll be painting- guess what- a barn! My show at the Blue Whole Gallery in Sequim runs until the end of the month.
Thanks to my good friend, Susan Martin Spar (check out her blog, The Daily Muse by Susan Martin Spar), I have now entered the world of blogging. Here are some images of paintings that are still available. As time goes by, I will add new images. Enjoy!
My husband and I live in the Pacific Northwest. Before moving here in 2006, we lived on Kodiak Island in Alaska for 23 years. There, I worked in an art gallery, commercial fished (only for a summer), and taught art at Kodiak College for nearly 18 years. My specialty is aviation art, and I am a member of the American Society of Aviation Artists, the Canadian Aviation Artists Association, NorthWest Air Force Artists and the Coast Guard and Air Force art programs. I have won some cool awards from places like ASAA, Simuflite/Flying Magazine and Aviation Week and Space Technology and have done some work for Alaska Magazine, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association and the Alaska Airmen's Association. I love painting airplanes, but find doing occasional still life and landscapes a fun diversion. Additional diversions are singing with a Sweet Adelines chorus and tap dancing. Boredom is not in my vocabulary.
