Just a friendly thank you

March 19th, 2013 3 comments

As I am getting ready for my show at The Station, I am painting less and doing a lot more of the background kinds of jobs that artists must do, like matting, framing and getting paintings in order. I am, however, trying to keep my paintbrushes wet.

I have always loved to get and to send mail, and have been decorating envelopes and making cards for decades. This is the outside of a thank you card.

From April 1st to April 30th a good variety of my paintings will be on display at The Station, which is a very friendly little coffee shop at 2533 16th Ave S Seattle, WA 98144‎ on Beacon Hill. Most of the paintings that will be on display are for sale. All sales proceeds go to Animal Conservation organizations.

The rock stacker

March 1st, 2013 2 comments


One of our family’s favorite pastimes is going to the beach, or to a river, and playing with rocks. I have always loved playing with rocks, finding the prettiest, finding nice shapes, and then taking them home to line my walk. Donald was a bit more creative, he stacked them. He stacked rocks everywhere we went. And he brought home stacks of rocks and gave them as gifts; complete with instructions.

We like rocks so much that our front yard is full of them. In fact, some of Donald’s rock stacks are still standing; accompanied by stacks that other family members have added as well.
