One of my favorite artists! Judi’s work is so intricate and filled with stories. Open Studio Tour is coming soon!
We took an extended break in Yachats last weekend to try and recuperate from everything. We both had been stricken with some horrible nasty cold thing from the previous weekend (out with people and small children at the Evergreen Air and Space Museum). Fortunately, the coast was warm and super sunny Fri through Sun. MondayContinue reading “Coastal Break”
Black and white plus color! And on the front page! What an honor! Interviews are always an interesting experience. You never know what information will be absorbed and posted by the reporter. Dave and I certainly had a chuckle from some of the information given. It’s too bad the reporter didn’t plug the Oregon Arts Commission not theContinue reading “All there in black and white”
Displaying our catch back in 1975: big sister and I holding up trout probably caught along the Donner or Blitzen river by the Steens Mountains in south-eastern Oregon. Our dad filleted and cooked them for dinner. It was a big milestone for me, my first successful fishing trip. The sport didn’t “catch” on. IContinue reading “Milestones”

My goal was to inspect lighting and the general nighttime appeal. Our conclusion: Night viewing is the best! I’ll get back there soon for better images. The windows are tough to shoot throughContinue reading “Night Camas in Halsey Oregon”

Take to the newly painted and roofed library building in Halsey. And start installing while having aContinue reading “The big move: Camas installation in Halsey”
Today was the easiest part of the install, delivering the camas. I gently placed them in the car, removed all the honey bees wishing to tag along (always an issue with bees wax) and off I went. It is a breezy afternoon and I almost had a camas incident when they were all leaningContinue reading “Camas Installation: day one”
Above is about half of the mural (and the most completed section at this point). More to work on. Lots of spray fix between layers of pastels and charcoal. Whew, I can’t wait to be done with this thing! Materials: book paper, charcoal, tracing paper, pastels, acrylic ink, glue, recycled doors and latex wallContinue reading “Mural: Stage 5”
