Is Someone Looking Back?

The lovely folks at the Seaview Manor have once again invited me to create the poster for this years'  holiday Bazaar. This unique event features about 30 local artisans offering handmade wares. There will be everything from clay buttons and body products to jewelry and handmade baskets. I will also be there, with my paintings available as framed art, greeting cards, and very possibly a calendar!
It can often be chilly here in October, so this little guy has pulled on a spider-silk cap and long-sleeved shirt dyed with elderberries. Red alder leaves curl up into a perfect boat shape as they drop to the ground in autumn. They come in handy for short trips out to gather bull kelp fronds. While out harvesting some of this seaweed one early evening, imagine his surprise to see someone looking back!

Making Wishes . . .

Making Wishes (watercolor 9" x 11")
. . . for sweet sunny summer days . . . for crisp cool evenings by the fire . . . for long lazy hours listening to the sea . . . with good food and good friends all around . . .
The wonderful folks who host the Seaview Manor Bazaar asked me to paint the poster for their event this year. Every fall they invite a small number of talented artists and craftspeople to sell their wares at a beautiful beachside home in Seaside, Oregon. A generous percentage of profits are donated to the local Women's Resource Center. In October, I will make my way to Seaside to be a part of this event for a third time.
