Wow! It's been a long time. Let's see.....I was in a show on Vashon Island this year (2017), juried into Arts at the Port in Anacortes in 2016, had a successful Skagit Artists Together Studio Tour in 2016, and my "Peace Talks" series was donated to the 2015 Pilchuck auction (and purchased). Right now I'm getting ready for the 2nd annual 98221 Studio Tour on October 21 and 22 (I'll be closing a little early on the 21st to head to Seattle where 2 of my pieces are part of this year's Pilchuck auction).
My Space Series piece is successfully bid on and sold at the Pilchuck Glass School Juried Auction, held at the Westin Hotel in Seattle in October.
Three of my dimensional landscapes, "This Land Was Your Land", "Before the Storm", and "Northwest Passage" (check them out in the DL Gallery) were accepted! The show runs from June 19th thru August 2nd with an opening reception from 5 to 8pm on the 19th - and I would love to see YOU there! (You know who you are!) ;D
The past 4 months have been spent, designing, cutting, grinding, foiling, soldering and polishing 6 transoms for the new Celtic Arts Foundation building in Mt. Vernon. I'm very pleased with the results (check them out in the Stained Glass Gallery) and thanks to Skye Richendrfer for trusting me and giving me this great opportunity to expand and showcase my skills. Tapadh Liebh (and I sure hope that means "thank you")!
...for the Children's Hospital Home Tour on Sunday, I finished two stained glass corner windows for our kitchen!
What have I been doing lately?
19 years ago I completed this window for the space between our bedroom and the staircase. Since then I've grown increasingly disenchanted with the colors and the middle design. So what was there to do but design another one!?!
Just installed a new panel in the bathroom door near our kitchen. Check it out in the stained glass window gallery!
How exciting - and nerve-wracking - it was to listen to the bidding on my "Eye of the Galaxy" this past Saturday evening, and it turned out to be my best-ever donation to this splendid museum!
