I can’t believe it’s almost the end of summer! That flew by so quickly. In art news, I am going to try to show some of my photographs from my trip to Mexico as well as some paintings at the art walk in Forest Grove next week. I’ll be at the Hidden Closet. I’ve never done something like this before so we’ll see!
The owners at Art on Broadway in Beaverton Oregon were nice enough to interview me for consideration for their guest art walls later in the fall. Not sure if I’ll make it but it was the a good opportunity and the first time I have ever talked to a gallery.
Here is Matisse the kitty “helping” me frame my work. I sure could use a studio helper!
And on the day my little ginger kitty woke me up at 4:30 am, I somehow created this painting. I wish they all came out so effortlessly!
It’s been a glorious summer here in Portland and I’ve neglected this blog. But I’ve been soaking up the sun taking lots of pictures and trying to paint as much as possible.
My artist friend Nancy Cuevas has encouraged me to sign up on Patreon. So I did.
Patreon is a way for artists to share exclusive content and get support from patrons to help fund projects, art supplies, pay rent – all that good stuff.
I have SO MANY photos to share, like I have barely scratched the surface on this blog. I’ve got film photography, watercolor paintings, works in progress, and now my latest fix are all these really awesome iPhone apps (I’ve heard all good things about: A Color Story, Afterglow, Camera Plus, VSCO Cam, Photoshop even has an app) and I’m delighted to find that some allow for more manual settings than the standard camera app that comes native to the iPhone. So with my hard drive on every single device (my iPhone, my computer) brimming to the max with images, I’m going to try to make good use of them. My future supporters and patrons will receive a high resolution image of my artwork and they can print them however they want.
TIP: For affordable art prints, you can download my image and check out Costco:
a nice sized print 16×20″ runs around $7
a HUGE print 20×30″ runs around $10
You can choose to pick up in store to save on shipping.
Thank you so much for your support! Hugs!

My print shop is now live via Instaproofs! I’ve uploaded photography from my recent travels.
Eventually I hope to add prints of my paintings. I’m using a professional, high-end film print shop based in Los Angeles, Richard Photo Lab. These guys are wizards at color and are experts in their craft.
You will receive archival quality images on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper or Kodak Professional Endure Premier Paper. I will be donating a portion of my proceeds to the Nature Conservancy. Thank you in advance for supporting my work.
