Hi again! Busy summer of traveling and painting. We spent two weeks overseas this summer touring England and Scotland. As much as I loved it, I felt much better, (and less tired), when we got home to the US!
I've added two new art prints to my website here
The Elegant Clamdigger
The Vintage Beach Cottage
Both paintings were completed a few months back and were included in my studio tour last May.
I could not bear to part with the painting Vintage Beach Cottage, so it's currently hanging in my studio bedroom space!
Until next time,
Summer is early in Seattle this year. The summer solstice is June 21, but the last few days have been hot and dry, and summer is not disappointing us here. I truly am a fan of cooler weather- the last few days have been too hot for me.
So I’ve been escaping to my cool, temperature that is, studio getting some painting done. Awhile back I mentioned that I bought some new wood panels to paint on. I’m really enjoying my oils on these panels. Here’s what I’m working on- a still life with sweet peas. Never painted these petals before- they are so very delicate!
I hope you are enjoying the beginning of your summer too.
Until next time,
Thank you to everyone who came to my studio for the 20th annual Camano Island Studio Tour! I really enjoyed meeting new friends, chatting with old friends, and talking about my studio and artwork. A few highlights included my daughter traveling from Cleveland so she could work with me the first weekend of the tour, including on Mother's Day! My son and his wife flying here from San Francisco to support me during the tour!
I have so many ideas already, swirling around in my head to complete for next years' tour. (That goes with the territory though since every day I am creating new images and ideas to implement). For now though, it's time to take pause and enjoy and remember all the fantastic memories.
So thank you again to all of my supporters! You keep me going and inspired to keep painting and creating!!
Until next time, Shann
