Columbia Valley Bird Goddess

Desperately painting to finish so I can take paintings to the "Wings over the Rockies" show. I thought I had another week, argh!

At the spring equinox, residents of the valley present offerings of coloured eggs to the Goddess to insure adequate rainfall and good golf scores.

The Hitchhiker

Yesterday, an artist-in-residency I had applied for let me know there was no residence available. I also got passed over for a grant to study in Alberta. I'm feeling pretty discouraged. I'm in a workshop this week and feeling like I can't paint. Spring feels like it is never coming to this valley. I am going to go find some cheese to enjoy with this whine.

My brother's house

This is taken from a snapshot of my brother's house in Illinois. It has since been remodeled by a tornado, but all is well.
