“Improbable Dreams of a Tree” has been juried into the 2020 BAM! Virtual Show & Sale. COVID-19 pushed this one online too, and it’s good news considering that it could be just canceled.

There were 544 submissions this year, and the show has been made bigger than usual because there are no physical space constrains. I am so excited to see others’ creations, even though it will not be an in person experience!

The show will run for the entire month of October, 1-31, 2020.

“Fortitude” juried into the 2019 Beaverton Arts Mix!

Dropped my “Fortitude” along with matted prints and greeting cards for the Beaverton Arts Mix! yesterday. It was so well organized that I was in and out in no time. Much appreciation goes to organizers and volunteers!

Picked up my remaining items from the Beaverton Art Mix! show today. I was on the fence about bringing so many of my horse drawings, not knowing how well they would be received there, but to my surprise most of them have been sold. Thank you, horse-loving people! Thank you everyone who came to see the show, to the Beaverton Arts Program people who organized the show so well, to all the volunteers who helped them! I would love to be a part of it next year.

My new mixed media pieces at Four Eights 2017

I will have four new 8″ x 8″ mixed media pieces in the Four Eights Artist Challenge II exhibit and art sale at the Center for the Arts.

This exhibit will showcase artworks created during the Four Eights an Artists Challenge II that tasked participating artists with creating original artwork around a singular theme on four square canvases, each canvas being 8″ x 8″. All artwork will be for sale and priced between $30 and $100.

My theme this year is “relations” expressed through flowers, leaves, and branches that make a bush or a tree, all different yet inseparable. See how the first canvas came to life.

An opening reception for Four Eights will be on Thursday, October 12, from 6:30 p.m. till 8:30 p.m. Stop by to meet the artists, curators and other art lovers, enjoy refreshments and live acoustic music.
