Artists Running Amok- part 1

Oh yes, last night we sprinted between studios during the first night of pre-tour for the 2015 Philomath Open Studios. We managed to make it to 9 out of 17 studios. We have one more night to cover the remaining 8. Saturday, the studios all open at noon for the public. Let the sales begin! Actually, the pre-tour allows us to see everyone’s work and make purchases!  Thank goodness everyone carpooled otherwise it would have been a mess! Below are just a couple of photos from the evening. I didn’t manage to get images of all the studios because I forgot to pull out the camera. Amazing how seeing so many good friends and plenty of great art can cloud the brain.

Sabine
Studio #9- Sabine Miner (encaustic) and Lyn Radosevich (mosaics). Sabine’s studio is inside a gorgeous barn!

Studio #5- Mike Bergen (oil painting) and Rinee Merritt (kiln formed glass/mixed media).

I suspect the public will find something tempting at all 17 studios!

    1. The mushrooms were at a home I wish I lived at. Actually I’m not certain about the house but the surrounding area is gorgeous with a beautiful garden (surrounded by deer fencing) , goats, lots of trees and tucked above a roaring creek. Downside is that they probably have horrible cellphone reception. I love your recent mushroom drawings! 😄
