You are Invited!


For the 2nd year I am indeed the Curator of the Pacific Northwest Plein Air Competition and Exhibit. This is my annual goof-off photo, but hanging the work is very serious business and I am grateful to the volunteers (Eric J, Mike R, Bill S, Todd S,  Eric V, Cathleen R, Dave B,  Karen W, and Rhonda-last-name-initial-unknown) who did an outstanding job of making sense of 200+ plein air paintings. So, now the next thing is that the artists and the art appreciators must come to the reception (Yes.....that's you!)  Find out about it all HERE.

Hi,Celeste,
Enjoy it!!
Only the shame is that the photo does not show you well(in shadow). Anyway, have a good time.
Cheers,Sadami

Another great year at the Pacific Northwest Plein Air 2011. Much better for me than last year as I came through intact! Celeste, I thank you for all of your work on the show and I love the photo. Very candid.

Interesting stuff Celeste! Your continuous activity in art is amazing.

I've heard of those long handled paint brushes, does he make those himself? Very useful in getting that perfect stroke from standing back.

You look like a sculpture with that
hammer in your hand! Watch out for that window!

Woo hoo! Glad you are having fun amidst all your hard work. Can't wait to see the 25 you submitted for our Broderick show.

Thanks Sadami, Donna, Caio, Bill, Ralph, Carrie & Quin...having two receptions scheduled so close together is sorta great--it's just art-art-art all the time...just like it should be! ...!:)
