Hello World!

This is my very first post on my very first blog! I’m starting a website and think this will be a good way to get my feet wet since I almost never use my facebook page that was intended for self promotion. I am a visual artist. I paint, make jewelry and think about painting and making jewelry 🙂

I live in a community of 20k people m/l in one of the greatest parts of the country. I feel it’s the greatest because it is near the ocean, (less than 2 hours away), one of two huge valleys that produce food and timber, and it’s mountainous. Oregon has so many rivers and creeks that are home to so much wildlife. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. My exact location is kinda funky…. remember the movie, “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”? yep, that’s where I live.

I’m listening to the train horn and the freeway traffic as I write this. The local airport landing airspace is overhead. (I can also see the river from my house and watch boats go by during salmon season). Okay, it sounds like I’m making this up, but I’m not, a flock of about 30 Canadian geese just flew by, heading south above the river. (not because they follow the river, but, because it’s kind of a revine next to Mt. Nebo. Yep, it is pretty cool where I live…

I guess I want to write about my art life. It’s what I think about quite a bit and what I try to do as often as I can.
