november 2010: the art enthusiast

Hello everyone! Fall is here and with it comes the vibrant leaves and moody skies. I hope to get out there and get some plein air painting done (under shelter, of course!) at some point. Anyways, here is the latest news regarding shows and Classes that I have in November and beyond:


Parklane Gallery in Kirkland - I always have original art, prints, and cards for sale at this wonderful gallery in vibrant downtown Kirkland. My schedule for November has me in the gallery November 27th from 2:30-6pm. Come by and see the best selection of affordable, original art in the area.

Come visit me at the Holiday Art Mart in Mukilteo! I will be selling my garden rocks, which can bring your original art collection to the outdoors. Small, medium or large, they make a big impact in your landscape. November 6th, 2010 from 10am-4pm. Get more information at

I have a number of pieces from my collection, "An Appreciation of Life" of children enjoying the simple joys of life, as well as some of my nature pieces hanging at Verity Credit Union's Head Office in Seattle's Northgate location. There are also a couple pieces on view for the public at their Northgate branch. You can find out more about Verity Credit Union at

Learn beginner acrylic painting skills and complete a painting in just two hours! Each class teaches you the basics and gives you more information to allow you to paint on your own as well.

  • Classes are almost over and we're booked solid so there is no room this session, but watch for another session in early 2011!
Woodin Elementary (Bothell):
  • There is still room - only 3 classes left in this session!
View Ridge Elementary (Everett):
  • Starts November 2nd, with 6 sessions every Tuesday after school.
Creatively stuck? Want to loosen up a little? Take 2 minutes every day to sit in a quiet space and attempt a continuous line drawing. Draw your coffee mug, the printer beside your computer, your kid at naptime. Anything goes - no one ever need see it - just put your pen or pencil on the paper and don't pick it up - make it really messy and loose. I do these regularly and they are a fun way to create a loose drawing to get me ready for the real work ahead!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone - I'm thankful to be able to create my art and have wonderful friends and family who support me in my creative endeavors! I hope you create something new this month, too!

As usual, you can find me online in the following places:
