A great day for painting sales!

I’m proud to announce that Cole Gallery just sold four of my paintings to The Puget Sound Blood Center. Thank you Denise Cole at Cole Gallery for making it happen!

Perfect Edmonds Evening

 

Spring has sprung in a Bainbridge Island home office.

A couple of weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of working alongside my client. Normally when I do a project I am left to my own devices and work in isolation for 7-8 hours a day. I have KIRO radio as company and laugh along with the morning show and laugh (and sometimes growl) at the afternoon show (no offence Dori!). On this occasion however Bill, my client, asked if he could be a part of the project and the painting process as he wanted to try to complete the room on his own after I left. He and his wife Kerry were exceptional hosts for my four days on Bainbridge Island and the results of our labor can be seen below. The room still has a long way to go, Bill intends to paint he entire space, depicting all four seasons in the mountains but hopefully we put him on a good path to achieve his goals. Thanks Bill and Kerry, it was fun hanging out. Good luck with the rest of the project!

Chanterelle’s new bar is open!!

Check out Chanterelle’s in Edmonds new bar. Just open and a fabulous addition to an outstanding restaurant. I was thrilled to be able to play a small part in the decor with the painting of my favorite peaks in the Olympic Mountains, “The Brothers”.

Congratulations to Brooke and Randy and very best wishes for future success.

It’s Show Time Again

Well, it’s that time of year again. Show season. Starting February 11th we will be at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in booth 963 at the Washington State Convention Center. Then starting February 14th we’ll be at the Seattle Home Show.

We have a special booth design for both shows this year. At the Flower and garden Show we have a mural painted on aluminum set into the back of the booth. This is a material I have used frequently in the past for exterior work as it’s a great alternative to painting directly onto an exterior surface if that surface is unsuitable for some reason.

For the Seattle Home Show I’ll be painting a 6 x 4 canvas on site during show hours from Monday Feb 16th through to the close of the show.

And just in time for the show we won the 2014 Angie’s List Super Service award! That’s two years in a row!

Also coming up on Feb 7th it’s the annual Cole Gallery Anniversary Show. There is a fabulous collection of new work by gallery artists and it’s always a fun packed and mesmerizing event. Drop by and spend a little time taking in the array of beautiful art!

Our booth at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show is 963. Hope to see you there! (bring coffee!)

Out with the old-In with the New!

It’s the time of year again when we take that slight feeling of cabin fever and turn it into home projects. It somehow feels right to reorganize our spaces, clean out the closets and begin to plan for those home improvement projects we’ve been thinking about over the holidays. That’s why all the Home Shows and Remodeling Shows start right around now, to capture that imagination that’s been brewing.

We’ll be in the Northwest Flower and Garden Show and the Seattle Home Show again this year with some new displays and (at least at the Seattle Home Show) some in-show painting! But that’s all in February!! There’s still a month or so to go and now’s the time to get your ideas developing. The month of January is typically a great time to ask for quotes and design work so that you can have your project scheduled before the annual showtime rush. We usually book out 2-3 months following the show season so don’t wait to get in touch.

Last year was a good one with many new and exciting projects and new directions of work. One new opportunity arose in the form of McMenamins Restaurants who are opening a new place in Bothell later this year. I’m proud to say that I’m one of the 14 artists hired to work on this colossal project.

Don’t forget, it costs nothing to find out how you can change your environment in 2015! Consultations and design are free. So while you’re emptying out the nest and making more room, take a look at your flat, boring walls and imagine the possibilities. I’d be happy make your visions a reality.

Happy New Year everyone!!

Here’s a brief glance back at just a few of the projects from last year.

The grey winter months proved to be great inspiration for some subtle paintings. “Penn Cove East” and “Penn Cove West” were purchased later in the year by Swedish Edmonds.

Out of show season we landed some fun and intriguing projects. One of which was this set of trompe l’oeil bookcases.

The summer saw a couple of firsts. This harpsichord lid was painted in the style of a 18th century Japanese painting while the space scene below completed the windows of the “Jupiter” spacecraft from “Lost in Space” for an enthusiast in Gold Bar.

Mcmenamins’ call for artists for their Bothell location was a wonderful event of the late summer. The panels for this project will go on for some time. Below is the Thanksgiving panel.
