After Agrodolce switched hands I had to remove the flower paintings that I had there. Two were 48″x 60″ canvases, the largest I have ever painted on. That’s 20 sf each, a lot of mass and wall space. They hung in a private dining alcove in the restaurant they were perfect for that space. When I found out that it was changing hands I was worried because leaving Inscape I needed to find these a home. No one had bought them at my last open house, so that led me to reaching out to Swedish Medical Center to see if they would accept them as an art donation. After a week of waiting I found out that they would accept them as a donation! Honored and thrilled I am! So much less stress. They also accepted a painting titled “Green as Far as the Eye Can See” made in 2014 is one of only two I have had professionally framed. It is stunning like the flowers I have titled Millefiori 1and 2. I can’t wait to find out where they are hung so I can go visit them! This is a highlight of my art career! ￼￼
My new studio space is almost up and running! I have to bring up all my paints and gather more floor coverings. I have my easel with a painting I haven’t touched in a couple of years on it. Can’t wait to get out the brushes and create! It’s been a long time since I have painted a painting. 2019 is the year with the least amount of paintings in 15 years. More on why to come…..so it’s definitely time to get back to work.
The piano that I painted for a Pianos in the Park 2017 has been here with me at Inscape for two years. It was painted here. I’ll never forget choosing the piano, 1 of 11, and it was cool because this one spoke to me. I loved being able to put the blue flowers on the framed part on the front of￼ the piano. I loved everything about that experience. What an honor to have been chosen for that. Well now that I’m leaving Inscape Arts it will stay behind for others to enjoy for years and years to come. I’ll have to visit it from time to time during their twice a year open studios! I’ll miss seeing it when I leave.
After 6 years of my art at Agrodolce Restaurant in Fremont I had to remove it. It changed hands in March, and the new owner wanted to decorate to his liking. I had a great time being a part of the restaurant. My art made the walls so beautiful. I perfected my technique over the years being there. They are so unique, colorful, vibrant, and textured. So many people loved to see them there. I had many commissions and met really great people. I was able to deliver flowers to Chicago because of my flowers seen there. I will hold those memories very dear to my heart. Wish you the best of luck!
After 6 years At Inscape Arts my studio will relocate back to my home. I have been painting for 15 years now and 9 of them have been at my house, so I am accustomed to it. I will miss Inscape terribly but all things come to an end. Who knows, I might have another space in an art collective again one day. I am in the middle of setting my space up and will start painting again real soon! New artwork to come soon, with pictures.
My last open studios will be October 5th. After 6 years I will be closing my doors at Inscape Arts November 7th. So come on down I will be having a big art sale to purge my paintings because I am limited on space in my home. Prices will be dropped!
Come down to Inscape Arts on 12-8-18 at 815 Seattle Blvd. S. It’s fun to bring friends and check out all the artists in their studios. Perfect time for holiday shopping. I’m in studio #102! See ya there!
