“Unveiling Climate Change ~ Artful Messages”

This show has just opened at WA State's Department of Ecology. I was invited to participate in the juried selection and two of my pieces are now hanging in the lobby. Above is "Floating in a Kelp Forest" and Leafless. The reception for work from the twenty seven artists is June 3 and the show continues through Aug. 12.

Renewal & Nebula

I submitted two art quilts for the next juried CQA show. http://www.contemporaryquiltart.com Both were accepted! The show will be this summer at the Lynnwood, WA library. One is Renewal, shown in the last post. The other is Nebula, a detail shown here.

Last week, I took a two day workshop on art and business. With a wide spectrum of presenters and attendees, I have lots to review.

The tulips in the Skagit Valley are done for the year. The fields glow with thousands and thousands of tulips, then the farmers chop the tops to let the bulbs develop. For few days, the rows between plants looks as if they've been sprinkled with confetti. Another sign of spring. And I have a spring crop of handbags to send off to Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA. http://www.confluencegallery.com
