My husband has shown his sculpture at Shidoni in New Mexico since 1989. Tommy Hicks is not only the owner but a wonderful friend. During our visit this summer we met little Miss Candy. She is a most loyal devotee. She prances her little body next to Tommy's golf cart as if she were guarding a king. In many ways she is.
Ross and I recently took our first trip to Walla Walla, Washington to go on a "wine tour" with the wine group we meet with. We have the least knowledge in the group so we some times would get distracted with other things. For instance, almost all the wineries have Venetian plaster work somewhere in their interiors. The first place I saw it I ended up in a full body rub of the wall. It was so cold and smooth! and an amazing visual effect. Then there was the view some of the property afforded! all those plants forced into strict formation just put your eyes into overload.
I met these little darlings on a recent visit to the outstanding winery Abeja in Walla Walla, Washington. They belong to John and his partner Molly. They were everywhere we went but amazingly never under foot.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
