Looked at my blog yesterday and saw that it has been several weeks since I did any updating. Have been doing more on Facebook and realize that I need to share things here as well. Our chorus had our annual show in October and since then I've been jammin' to finish up a couple of pieces for the Coast Guard Art Program, due in about six weeks. Seems like a long time, but things keep happening, like the Sequim Arts Show, fulfilling my duties at the Blue Whole Gallery and music practice for the upcoming Christmas singing events. I know, I know. Priorities! Meantime, here is a new painting of the Seattle skyline at night that appears in the Sequim Arts show today through Sunday.
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.
