Feeling crabby

Don’t get me started on why I am feeling crabby recently. Instead, let’s focus on the positive:

Dungeness 9 x12 mixed media on canvas, $375.

I had a lot of fun with this 3-dimensional mixed media piece that includes fabric, papier-mâché and acrylic paint elements. I have fond memories of the annual all-you-can-eat Dungeness crab feed picnic when we lived in Sitka. It was a wonderful community event that we all looked forward to all year long. I don’t know if they are still doing it there since I haven’t lived there in a few years, but I sure hope so. It was a great part of the beautiful community that is Sitka, AK. And soooooo tasty!

Morning Light

Morning Light, 11×14 acrylic on canvas, $300

Don’t you just love a sunrise over a peaceful pond? That early morning light breaking through the mist is so lovely. Makes me want to cozy up with a cup of Earl Grey and a volume of Thoreau. I’ve tried to capture that misty morning feeling in this painting, Morning Light. Available for viewing or purchase at Art Shop Gallery in beautiful Homer, AK.

First Friday show in June!

I’m so exited to announce that my first Friday show that was cancelled last year due to Covid has been rescheduled for June 2021!

So join me June 4 at the Art Shop Gallery in beautiful Homer, Alaska. I will be there and will debut some brand new never seen works as well as older pieces that never got their show last year.

Meanwhile, here is a little sneak peek at a couple of the new pieces:

I hope to see you there!

Chillin’ with the Belugas

Belugas Swimming Under an Iceberg, 12×24, acrylic on canvas, $500. Prints coming soon.

I was lucky to spot a large pod of belugas in Cook Inlet a few weeks ago. With no pack ice to camouflage them in the summer, they really stand out with their bright white color and can be easily sighted splashing and rolling as they hunt their fishy prey. Such charismatic little whales, I can help but smile whenever I see them. With the corners of their mouths naturally upturned, I like to imagine they are smiling back at me.
