Thank you to my Pacific Northwest collectors, friends and community. I had a very successful show at the Bellevue Museum Fair this year and am so appreciative for everyone’s support and patronage. Some of my favorite paintings sold at the show including the newly completed ”Applegate Valley Vines” which sold on the first morning. Fortunately the collector let me hold onto that piece until Sunday so others could see it. I had finished it and had it framed just a few days before we left for the show so it was nice to be able to look at it for a few more days before having to part with it.
The Bellevue show is long hours (12 hour days) but when you are in the company of funny, friendly artists it is a lot of fun. On the way up and down we broke up our trip and stayed at a wonderful b&b in Eugene, Oregon called The Augusta House. If you are looking for a luxury inn in that area, I cannot recommend this place enough. It is truly a cut above and as frequent travellers we tend to be picky.
I’m back in the studio working on commissions from the show as well as preparing for the Sausalito Art Festival coming up over Labor Day weekend. I have some paintings that were nearly finished prior to Bellevue and will be posting those soon.
Its back to the studio for me. Until next time…..
