I’d like to shout out a big thank you to Sydni Sterling and Mike Dillon, who opened up their garden and studio for a twice annual exhibit of new work. Thanks to all the guests, friends, and visitors who stopped in. It was wonderful to see everyone!
One of my grandson’s, Asha, shared his origami. His work definitely brightened up the garden!
There were many paintings of gardens, ponds with koi and lillies, and special places the artist is fond of, but Sydni Sterling’s paintings of boats and water were absolutely stunning!
My work is becoming simpler in some ways. I find the negative spaces, and the natural colors and shapes of the limbs and bark, very appealing.
Below are Madrona Bark Forms, and on the wall, Cedar Bark Coil on Hazelnut.

The next opportunity to see Sydni’s newest paintings and my new work will be November 7-9, 2014, during the Art In The Woods Studio Tour. Hope to see you there.
