Build a studio. It has been the idea/dream ever since we moved into our tiny house on a big lot in Tacoma in 2011. Russell started building that studio last year. Here is a slide show of his progress. It is 2 minutes long and spans the time he started in early June 2016 through last week. Russell and some other helpers have done all the work. I have barely lifted a finger, but I give lots of encouragement and take pictures. I mostly stand around, amazed, in giddy anticipation of the day that I will be able to paint in this magnificent studio.
I haven't written in this space for some time. (about 3.5 years, to be exact~!) Life gets busy, and working at a computer during the day, I am never really excited to sit at the computer when I am at home. But here I am! I am really excited to be showing my paintings at Walter's Cafe in Ballard for the month of June 2017. The address is 6408 32nd Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107. We will be having an Opening on Friday, June 2nd, 6 - 8pm. The cafe is pretty tiny, but they have great coffee, ice-cream, beer, and of course, ART! Drop by and say hi!
At this stage of my life, I am finding so much joy in creating these paintings (after all these years!!). The work is leading to more work, and it really creates a sense of wonder for me. Here are a couple of samples of the new ones.

I have decided to jump back in to the giant world wide web. I hope to continue to share new ideas and paintings as they come in to the world.
Here is a photo of part of my studio.....
Music and making things......This is what feeds my soul.
