LiveARTS Bothell

Here are some of the highlights from the 2010 Bothell Art Fair.  We had great fun in the kids corner.  There is something magical in the look kids get when they are painting, especially when they figure out how to mix colors.

Country Village Bothell

I teach art classes at the Arts Umbrella which is located in the Country Village in Bothell.  It's a great time of year to visit the village, there are flowers everywhere, not to mention chickens and ducks!  There are lots of cool shops and cafes.  My favorites are the Well Dressed Home, Papa's Place (for the cookies) and Town Hall Antique Mall.  Friday is the farmers market, flowers, produce, crafts, it's great. Can you tell why I love to take my camera to work!

These are works in progress for a series of drawings based on sculptures in France and Italy. They will be in my February show.

Stormy weather

Life is a bit like a little boat on a stormy sea right now.  But calm weather is coming so I'm hanging on tight to the oars in the meantime.  I'll post more in a couple of days.

Juggling once again!

We're on the final stretch of the school year, finals for Ellie and finishing up art classes, prepping for summer art camps, Bothell Art Fair Preview Party Decor and Kids Corner, studio time and poor quality housekeeping for me.  YIKES!!! Have I mentioned (about a million times)  I don't juggle well.

These are all works in progress.  My show in February will have a drawing component based on the sculptures I saw on my trip.  It's lovely to work in pencil!

Messages to Loved Ones:  Mom and Dad, I'm so glad Mom is feeling better, keep up the good work!  Uncle Doug, sorry for flaking out on communication, this week was CRAZY, I have a painting for you of the valley and Mt Rainier that would be perfect I think, it's framed and everything.  I'll shoot a photo off to you in the next couple of days via email so you can say yay or nay.  Nana, are you getting as tired of the rain as I am?  My garden looks like a jungle!
Love to all!
