There was a lovely ‘pop up gallery’ held at the Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference earlier this month at the Washington State Convention Center, Seattle, WA.  Robi Smith of Blue Lantern Studios (Vancouver BC) did a fabulous job of curating this temporary gallery within the Conference.  Ten artists provided a variety of artwork for viewers to enjoy and purchase. My painting ‘Salmon Canoe’ was purchased in addition to many of my greeting cards. I truly enjoyed meeting so many people who are dedicating their energy each day to protect and care for our earth, our Salish Sea on so many levels.

Small Works Show

This, my most recent painting for Gallery North in Edmonds, Washington. This watercolor which I call ‘Connections’, will be in their Small Works Show during March with an art walk on Thursday March 15, 5-8pm.  See you there! Edmonds is a super cute town with some great restaurants like Chantrelles which I highly recommend.

Young Riders Horse Trials Benefit at Lincoln Creek – Area VII

What an amazing weekend we all had, mostly because the young riders members (including their family members) put forth 101% in their volunteer energy and sweat to make this event a success. This was a very well run event and on a lovely property. The grass is infused with wild mint which gives off a lovely aroma here and there. The office crew was awesome, organized, and helpful. Organizer Anni Grandia, et al did a super duper job. I love eventers! “Good luck on your ride” was heard again and again by so many competitors. I was present with my art tent of horse paintings, greeting cards, prints, and offering of personalized horse portraits which I created with my water soluble Finito pen. If you enjoy sketching, find one! The versatility will amaze you.

I look forward to more sketching and to see everyone again at Equestrians’ Institute Horse Trials at Cle Elum Horse Park next month. Here are a few portraits from YRHT.
