Kidney Care...

This year is five years since kidney transplant!

So, it is very special to have been invited to
put art in Kidney Care Physicians 
Inland Shores clinic in Keizer.

Some of these paintings are creations from past years,
and there is one now in the reception area that is a piece that I just completed.

12 x 18" pastel

The waiting area features several paintings that were inspired by
some of my favorite nearby places that feature water.

"Peaceful Reflection"
8 x 6" pastel

I also am honored to have art in the downtown clinic.
To see more about the downtown clinic display of work.....go here

My donor hero, daughter Rachel, helped me hang the paintings again in this location.

We celebrate every day as a gift of life!

She Collects Memories of Friendship...

This years
Wild Women Show...

The theme is 
"Her Story"

"She Collects Memories of Friendship"
18 x 12" pastel

The inspiration for this painting came from a memory made
with my art sisters, Denise, Leslie and Deanna.
We were out for the evening downtown Salem, on a cool and rainy December night.

The scene was in the alleyway that joins Court and State Streets.
The light and shadows were what captured my attention, 
along with the memories we were making together!

Be Hopeful...

It's time to reflect and be grateful...
for family and friends, 
for the little things, and for the big things, 
that make up the moments of our lives.

4 X 6" pastel

It's wonderful to have the opportunity to feel the sense of  a fresh start!
Happy New Year!

Holiday Thoughts...

With the busy holiday season upon us,
it seems a good time to think about all the positive 
thoughts that bring about good feelings.

I have completed my project of painting little landscapes
for offering at the current Holiday Showcase at

Naming all these little works was a process that brought
me to thinking about "BEing"...
Each small original pastel painting has been given a title that
felt the right emotions, such as "Be Happy" or "Be Kind".

Stop in the gallery to see all the locally created gifts items available,
and take the time to see the latest exhibits as well.

The Holiday Showcase is now through December 24, 2017. 

Gallery hours are
 Tuesday-Friday from 10-5, and Saturday-Sunday from 12-5.
Closed on Mondays


All the best for a Cheerful Holiday Season!
