New Paintings–Deer, Birds, Hares–for July Show at Museo Gallery, Langley, Washington

Langley by the Sea is one of my favorite spots in Washington. The main street is nestled  right next to the beach and is lined with charming shops–the incredible Inn at Langley is just steps away and the town is filled with flowers, art and great places to eat–Prima Bistro is wonderful!

Grey whales slap and spin in the blue Saratoga Passage–there’s a new whale bell to ring every time one waves a fin! It’s such a special spot!

That’s why I am delighted to be the featured painter for the July show at Museo Gallery. It’s their annual Glass Works Show and I’m looking forward to being part of such a colorful presentation.

My work is all about romance and relationships, garden and les fleurs.–I love the old world look of European murals and the combination of exuberant color and pattern of vintage tapestries. It’s a big influence on what I’m painting now: patterned birds inspired by the sea-tumbled Blue Willow china shards I find in the sand; flower-covered deer running across fields of orange and pale green; a decorated hare and bird meet under the moon in a tree; a peacock takes command of the canvas in turquoise and deep green surrounded by fat red blooms.

Then there are the botanicals: creamy white blossoms against pink and blue…

The show will run from July 7-31 — hope you can make it!
