Flowers, Fungi, and Flight Opens Saturday April 8th, 2017!

A new silk & resin floral sculpture "Inspired By Roses"

I am having so much fun getting ready for the opening of my exhibit "Flowers, Fungi, & Flight" on April 8th!

The Pacific Rim Galleria will be providing wine and hors d'oeurvres - plus they have free valet parking (with no tipping allowed!). I will have a fun variety of paintings as well as an assortment of new Silk & Resin sculptures to view!

I will be demonstrating Silk Painting in the Galleria from 1-2pm and then the official exhibit opening is from 2pm-4pm.

The Pacific Rim Galleria (Bellewood) is located at: 3710 Providence Point Drive SE, Issaquah, WA 98029
Their number phone number is 425-391-2880. If you can't make the exhibit opening, you're welcome to call them to arrange a private tour of the Galleria - or of Bellewood itself (which is pretty amazing place!).

My exhibit will be available for viewing from April 8th through April 28th, 2017.

Hope to see you there!! (I'll be the one with paint-stained fingers, and purple and blue hair! LOL).

So You Want To Make Your Own Vertical Stovepipe Steamer?

I wrote a post on my other blog several years ago, but was just asked to create a new document for the Silk Painters group on Facebook.  So I thought I'd share it here!

Making your own Stovepipe Steamer is relatively easy to do and certainly cost effective!  To buy one new (and made specifically for silk paintings) will easily cost you over $1000 bucks.... but making one yourself can cost under $100 (mine was less than $50!).

I've had several people ask: Why do you want a Stovepipe Steamer?  Can't you just use a pot and steaming basket on your stove?
Both are good questions!
Yes you can use a pot and steaming basket on your stove.  But I personally, don't care for the idea of the chemicals/dyes/etc being in my kitchen. They are NOT good eats (to borrow from Alton Brown). Plus if you use a steaming basket in a pot, you have to constantly watch the water levels.  And you don't have a lot of space, which means you're probably only steaming 1 item at a time.  And …

If You Grew Up Near Renton Washington, Maybe You'd Remember This!

I grew up in the Seattle area - moving around a bit, but staying within the general area.  One of the things my family liked to do, was visit Newberry's and Sears in Renton, WA. 




I have VERY fond memories of the candy counter at Sears - where a kid with a quarter could buy a little bag of candies...yum!






Newberrys had a soda fountain (cafe) which was my mother's favorite place to get a hot dog - because they made buns out of folded, toasted bread. 




But my very favorite thing to do - was to play
on the cement turtles outside.  There were little turtles and big turtles.  You could step from turtle to turtle and climb the big ones.  They were there for years, after newberry's left..and even after Sears left.  Then they disappeared.
BUT guess who I found on the grounds of the Renton Highland's Library??  YUP! One of the original turtles!!

Apparently someone made a bunch of these (dubbed Tommy the Turtle) and sold them to a mall developer who put them in various malls acr…
