In my wanderings through artist profiles on Facebook I stumbled upon a fan page and links that begged further investigation. I'd found two gorgeous magazines produced by Stampington & Company, well, two of several they produce - Where Women Create and Artful Blogging. Among other goals this year, two are at the top of the list, the blog and the studio, so this was exactly the the inspiration I needed to pull out the stops and really go to it on both counts. The more I looked at the fan page and the websites, the more I felt urged to run out to Borders Bookstore and hold these issues in my hands and really examine them. Temptation being too much, I loaded my teenager in the car and did exactly that... and ended up buying both along with a drawing book for my budding-artist boy.
As I work to find my own creative voice within this space, you're going to begin to see more photos. They may not always pertain to the subject at hand and they won't be limited to my paintings. They will often be glimpses of my life though, whether it's local or some distant adventure.
These snapshots are from a rare sunny winter day in La Push on Washington's Coast. I do love living in the Pacific Northwest, as nature provides so much inspiration everywhere you look!
.....Happy Weekend! :-)
