Today is the day for the "Gathering of Artists" Show! Come to the Tribes Warehouse (302 4th Ave. South in "old town" Twin Falls between 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. to visit with 20 artists showing original works. I am privileged to be included in this show and have new work to present at this show. The warehouse is a unique setting for the show, and the experience promises to be an exciting new way to show art in Twin Falls. Stop by for a glass of wine and enjoy the afternoon with us.

Sawtooth Botanical Gardens during one of our South Central Region of Idaho Watercolor Society second Tuesday painting sessions. We have beautiful weather and I found these hollyhocks captured my attention. They took me back to my college days and the Sorority house where I spent so much time. The house had hollyhocks growing all along the south side and I enjoyed seeing them each summer.

I am so amazed to have achieved this ranking after seeing the quality of the works in the show. The works are available for viewing in BSU's Art Gallery in the Student Union Building. The judge, Don Andrews, said he "really liked my painting" as he shook my hand on stage. What a compliment coming from the judge! Small words that meant a lot to me. The show will hang at the BSU gallery until the end of June and will travel around the state through November. During the month of November, the top 20 will be hanging in the gallery in Twin Falls at the The Center for the Arts.

Flutter is the wonderful venue that hosted my work during the Art & Soul Contest a couple of weeks ago. Lori, the owner, graciously offered to display more of my artwork, so I have paintings available for sale as you enter the door. Nice store, nice people, stop in if you can!

Continuing to learn about ZenTangle techniques. This piece is larger than my regular drawings in my Moleskine notebook, and another direction with a landscape, so more of a challenge. Work in progress.

A recent good time with friends over dinner and the good wine they provided was the motivation for this piece. The original intent was for an abstract, but detail took over and frankly the paint had its way.

Have been trying out ZenTangle/ZenDoodle. What fun! Teaming with watercolor, it satisfies my need for doing close tight work, and lets me dabble with colors. I am trying out a color wheel that I saw from Robert Burridge. He shows an interesting way to think about color.

Tuesday I was fortunate to spend the day painting at Springdale School of Art near Burley with good friends from the local IWS chapter. Springdale is an amazing art center started years ago by Claudette Bray along with her good friend June Carey. Claudette has classes for kids and adults in what once was a school building. She has converted the old school building to house a wonderful multipurpose classroom, a gallery, a clay room, as well as places for digital work. It is an amazing resource for the community. http://springdaleschoolofart.com/
I have just discovered Zentangle/Zendoodle and love the challenge of creating patterns and Zen textures. It is truly relaxing. While I am learning the techniques, I am using a Moleskine watercolor notebook and black pens to create the designs. A spin off of my interest is posted today. The drawings depict what I saw yesterday at Springdale. My hope was to convey the energy we felt in the room yesterday!

The colors at Niagara Springs are spectacular in the fall. Niagara Springs is just one of the great places to visit in Thousand Springs State Park. Our paintings group spent a day there some time ago and I finally took those preliminary sketches a bit further.

Hiked near the area around the SNRA Visitor Center and along Murdock Creek to get this view. The snow levels were low during the holidays, so we could get close to the creek. It should be gorgeous today since the snowstorm is dumping as we speak!

Just finished this painting of the Big Wood River north of Ketchum. Have been working on skills to depict snow and water. I'm into a series...maybe. Definitely need to do the snow dance for the mountains this year.
