Taking Flight--The Power of Community

Flying Lessons is available as a print on my esty shop
Only two years ago, a community of artists formed out of Kelly Rae's online class, Flying Lessons. I am proud to be one of these artists, and very proud and delighted to be included in a show of paintings by fellow flyers at the Lede Studio and Gallery!

Sail Away is available as a print on my etsy shop
Lede Gallery is in Wake Forest, North Carolina, so some some of my work is all the way across the country being viewed by people thousands of miles away!

Besides the painting "Flying Lessons", I am also showing "Sail Away", "Golden Pathway", and "Walking on Water".

I have a confession to make, though. I was scared to send my original paintings on silk, priced at $450 to $900, to a gallery I had never heard of so far away. So I sent archival prints, matted and framed.

I Am So in Love with Alder Leaves!

I am so in love with alder leaves! Each one so perfect and no two quite alike! Some of them I printed on silk.

I'm In! Countryside Online Art Exhhibit!

Golden Pathway is available as art prints and cards in my etsy shop
My very first online art competition, and I'm in! 140 artists from all over the world entered 455 pieces this show, "Countryside", curated by the online gallery Light Space and Time. "Golden Pathway was one of 80 selected in the category "painting and other".

"Golden Pathway" is one of my favorite pieces, inspired by a summer walk with my beloved in a magical madrona forest on D'Çourcy Island in BC. It was a time of complete love, sailing in the sun, being exactly where I wanted to be. When my beloved died before the following summer, this image helped carry me through the grief. It has come to represent doing the work I am meant to do and that I love, being where I want to be, and being loved and in love.

May you experience walking the Golden Pathway in your life!

Archival art prints and cards of this image are available in my etsy shop.
