Basket lamp shade

Take one 6 foot bamboo shade, a tomato cage and a glue gun and make your own lay-ump! Frustrated at the cost of woven lamp shades and unable to find any workable baskets in the region, I improvised. Note: WEAR GLOVES. I burnt the heck out of a couple of fingers.....

The Good Life

Living the Good Life

This year, 2021, was another rather wild ride but we are still here. I'm hoping that 2022 will improve for everyone.

Online Classes

value study

I received a grant from Columbia Basin Trust back in 2018 to attend a workshop with an artist whose technique I wanted to study. Unfortunately, a week before the class date, the workshop was cancelled.

I spent the next year or so trying to find that workshop offered again or one with similar technique. Then Covid-19 arrived.

I do like attending workshops in person. There is always that synergy of creative people hanging out together and good contacts and friendship are formed. However, due to the restraints that are with us now, I am learning to appreciate online courses. I am working my way through the workshops. I am painting the same images multiple times to learn how to handle the paint and brushes. I have goals to keep me busy while the world moves beyond the pandemic.

Thank you, Columbia Basin Trust for making this possible.
