The dust hasn't settled yet...
Getting back to Walla Walla from the Oregon coast on March 14th evening and then racing into the week with projects that needed to be completed before leaving for Nevada on Friday morning. All things worked out and all planned tasks were completed. I met with Colleen Sargen the curator for the Willow Show and we selected the work that will hang in that show. I will also have some work at the new winery of Joe Grant and Doris Wood - Grantwood Winery - on Hwy 12 near Gose St. for the spring release.
Happily got a call from Laura at North Star Winery requesting work to hang there. I am hoping for a late fall time. Hopefully Idaho Beauty can bring some quilt work to the winery this spring.
I am ready to begin the work on the 9 Muses of Apollo "statues" for the Whitman Dance performance. 6' tall "half cylinders" that will be painted to the likes of grayish statues resembling the 9 muses.
And tomorrow I should have some new work for the series of 100 ready to be photographed and on the website and blog. 10 of the already completed ones are in frames and ready to hang at the Willow show! Six will go to Miles City for Chris to hang at Cafe' Utza show.
Thursday I will join the other board members of the Northwest Pastel Society for a meeting in Bellingham and then maybe a short stay in Seattle and back to work on more Muses.
The photos are from the OR coastal area...a diverse and interesting area. I am itching to get back out and start painting after being away for a few days...so I am leaving you with happy painting thoughts and some photos of Oregon!
