Spring in Seattle………..


Finally the sun is out in Seattle and totally staying out, the crows and sparrows are nesting in the backyard, and everyone is happy because for a while the rain is somewhere else……over near the coast or in the mountains….i like it. Here is a picture of my dad a few springs ago at the fair with his very good friend Hazelle and my husband Josh……it’s a good memory, it was hot and dad still had his eyesight, was painting feverishly and had a pretty girl friend on his arm….and yeah, i think we were eating sno cones, what could have been better? I love Seattle……

Finding Trust in NYC………

deerlooking1Just got home from my first solo opening in NYC of the Finding Trust series, Paul Moakley did such a beautiful job hanging and framing the show, I couldn’t believe how beautiful the location was, The Alice Austen House Museum is a dream, right on the water with a perfect view of the city and surrounding gardens. Meeting Holly Hughes and all the friends from PDN that i’ve only communicated through email with, met so many new friends, and thanks to my pals that flew in for the show……..i’m such a lucky girl. Cecilia Marshall wrote about me on her blog, happiness……….I learned a lot, was totally inspired by people….met with Richard Zimmerman from, formulated a plan about Hillary’s and my story on the orangutans and palm oil, have started pitching and meeting with possible takers, so excited!
