Artist's Reception at the Redmond Senior Center Gallery

Toomre half postcard.jpg

Prints of my work will be up on display at the Redmond Senior Center Gallery until November 30, 2018. There will be an artist’s reception on Monday, October 15. I am looking forward to seeing my work all up and framed! I normally work in sketchbooks so my work doesn’t get so spread out. I have ink and watercolor drawings from my trips to Cuba in 2017 and fall leaves on display. If you can’t make it to the reception, please stop by and take a look.

Nandina in the fall


Beautiful nandina, or heavenly bamboo, in the fall. Not all of the leaves change color, but the ones that do get this glorious rich red color. Some of these leaves were done wet into wet, others were layers of glazing, paint, let it dry, add another layer of paint. The shadows are always interesting to try to capture especially with double or triple cast shadows. Sometimes, I wonder where exactly is all the the light coming from? Prints will be available soon in the shop.
