Samish Island Paintout is an NWWS function that happens each fall. You can’t believe the vibrations when 40 to 50 talented artists converge in one spot to paint, paint, paint for 4 days. There was so much amazing stuff happening. I wish I could share some of what I saw, but you will just have to settle for one of my pieces or Iris in Crystal. The whole image does not show.
Wedding bells were ringing for my great nephew. Besides a typical wedding gift, I wanted to give the happy couple a print of a painting from where they grew up. This is a new painting I completed of Mt. Shucksan just outside of Bellingham, Washington. I am hoping they will love it for their new apartment life together.
I have been painting for the Art on the Boulevard Gallery and have a couple of new paintings to take in. The first is a series of sunflowers. My grandson planted a couple of sunflower seeds in my front yard. I don’t know the variety but they were huge. They were above the eves on my house. Here is a picture of him harvesting the seed head.
So, here are the 3 SUNFLOWER SERIES PAINTINGS that came from these huge sunflowers. They are all 11 inches by 15 inches and will be for sale at Art on the Boulevard.
A friend of mine lives on a lake in Minnasota. His son took a picture of his float plane and posted it on facebook. I thought it was an outstanding photo and asked if I could paint it. YEAH, it turned out to be a commissioned piece of work for the plane owner. I just love the colors in the sunset. Cory’s Vision
Well, I am very busy traveling, gardening, painting and playing Grandma so that I have not posted in way too long. But it is time again. I have several exciting announcements to make.
- My painting “CRYSTAL BLUE PERSUASION” was juried into the Northwest Watercolor International Show. What an honor. Keiko Tanabe was the judge. What a delightful warm and interesting artist she is.
2. My recent painting titled “HAND ME DOWN’S” was just juried into NWWS Waterworks exhibition by Iian Stewart. How nice is that. This completes my requirements for becoming a signature member. Hand Me Down’s is a painting about my older sisters bike. My dad painted it for me so it looked new. My father owned a bakery. In the window you can see a dough mixer. Notice the bike has a flat tire and a flower basket. Definitely another hand me down took place.
3. CLARK COUNTY OPEN STUDIO TOUR!!!!!! Luck is with me and once again I have been juried into CCOS. The date is November 11th and 12th from 10 AM til 5 PM I have lots of great new art and things for you to look at and hopefully take home to your new place. Hope to see you in my studio. By the way, I have named my studio ULU. ULU is an Alaska curved bladed knife and ULU is breadfruit in Hawaiian. Since I have lived both places I thin ULU is fitting. CCOS tour postcard
