16x20 oil. This is the last portrait with the usual group until September unfortunately. A more elaborate set-up than usual because we were to have it for 2 weeks. However, the snow and ice meant we had only one day and that was yesterday. I think I might work a little on shadows and perspective but basically this is it.

This is one of a series of 3 monotypes. It has been selected for the Fifth Annual CVG show. I am pleased because 137 artworks were chosen out of 800. This will be my first showing of a monotype.
I will also be in a Print show on Bainbridge Island, at The BAC Gallery with 6 monotypes that I produced last year.


This is a plein air oil 16x20 painting of Double Bluff on Whidbey Island, WA. I have since worked on top with oil pastel. It will be hanging in the Women Painter's of Washington show in the gallery in the Columbia Tower, Seattle, from February-May.

The 'Big' Snow

An oil pastel. My view out of the studio. Sort of.


The first oil portrait of the year. Unfortunately we only have one more session because our fearless leader is going to goof off in the sunshine.  I'm just jealous. Actually I was away in sunny Madison for Christmas and New Year, so I missed some sessions and then we had 'the big snow' which brought the whole Seattle region to a halt.
