Just In Time For The Holidays

The Portland Art Center is having a fund raiser this month featuring the work of many fine local artists. Each artist worked on a square wood panel creating in their own wonderful style. The panels will all be sold for $300. each. Such a bargain! 25% will go to the artists. Henry Hillman has generously agreed to match up to $20,000. of the purchases, thus doubling the benefits for Portland Art Center. The show runs December 6-22. There will be a preview next Wednesday night, prior to First Thursday, and an artists' party December 14. Please come and help out this worthy cause and buy some great art. Included will be my painting "Wildwood Fall." For more information go to

A Good Time Was Had By All

Last Saturday was the opening at Fountainhead Gallery in Seattle, and it was a great night. Ron and Sue Peterson, the owners of the gallery, did a terrific job of hanging the show, and provided a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere for all those in attendance.It was one of the most enjoyable openings I've had in quite some time Thanks to all who took the time to come to the show and say hello, and thanks to those who purchased work on opening night. The work of Cornish graduate Jonathan Owens, a fine show of pastel drawings of cloudscapes and nature closeups is featured in the mezzanine gallery. The work will be on view through November 25th, Thursday and Friday 11-6,Saturday and Sunday 12-5 and by appointment.
