Dog print show: final week

The dogs will be returning home after a month on view at The Arts Center of Corvallis. Their final day is Saturday May 25, noon to 5pm. If you do make it in, please make sure to visit BOTH gallery spaces (yes, they are split between two areas). Wander into the back office/staff space toContinue reading “Dog print show: final week”

Oh so close, but not yet finished!

Tuesday my eyes and lower back were acting up.  Just what I need right now! The eye thing is probably allergy related. Anyway, I experienced several glitches with the screen. First, I struggled with deciding where to draw the line between color 6 & 7.  The darker values are a lot harder to decipher. MoreContinue reading “Oh so close, but not yet finished!”

Explaining a process

I hoped for more but other issues popped up (trust related & renter stuff  that’s really icky compared to getting art done). The dog agrees with this too. An apologyContinue reading “Julie and Glenn: day 2”

My sister-in-law Lois, has had some great dogs in their house over the years. Recently they lost Julie, a wonderful old yellow lab. Lois keepsContinue reading “Julie and Glen”
