Got the news a couple of days ago that one of my paintings from my newest "Measure" series will be included in North Light Books Splash 17: Inspiring Subjects! I am elated! Look for it July 2016. Also you can pre-order Splash 16: Exploring Texture from Amazon. But there's more! Friday I received the news that my painting was accepted into Northwest Watercolor Society's 75th International Open Exhibition. Check my Events page for info.
So today I met with two friends at the museum and we spent an enjoyable day taking in the latest exhibit "Van Gogh to Rothko". Then we had lunch and finished by perusing the rest of the museum looking for new items we hadn't seen before. One of my favorite parts of the day was when we stopped and made little wire sculptures. For your enjoyment, I have posted a photo. Mine is on the far right. I call it "Yoga Class: A Self Portrait". Were we the only adults taking part? Not in the least. The "draw your own selfie" wall was quite popular. We also enjoyed leaving a "fish story" for all to enjoy in another part of the museum. We also enjoyed the "blue painting" in the modern section. Spend some time there for sure...you'll understand it even better a little later. The lady who strode by and told us she could make one for us for $20...well, that was just a smile-maker. Great day, great friends. Back to my brushes.
