This past weekend on July 10th to the 12th, I once again participated in McMinnville’s “Who’s on Third? – Artist Village”. This year, the canopies were set up two streets down on Cowls Street. This was a much better spot because we were in the middle of foot traffic as people went from live concert to the next and visiting vendors along the way. The weather was much cooler than last year, as well. No 90+ degree heat to scare art patrons from melting asphalt. Sunrise Rotary, the sponsor for this event, decided to have the public vote on their favorite work of art — The People’s Choice Award for First, Second and Third. Over 20 artists participated this year which made it an incredible festival of talent.
It was great to see people coming back from last year and remembering me. More than one occasion I was greeted with “I remember you from last year, I love your art” or “I saw you on tv and I had to see your work”. That made this event really special for me. I was thrilled to visit with each of them talk about my paintings. This makes me realize that I am developing a following of admirers and collectors of my art. Thank you to all those that bought art and stopped into my canopy.
This is my third showing at Newberg’s First Friday, Art & Wine Walk. For the month of June, I am featured in Sally Dallas’ Newberg Gallery. Sally Dallas, master framer & certified picture framer and owner of Newberg Gallery, invited me to showcase my new series of paintings on the I’Ching. For this event, I finished another painting using the I’Ching symbol #7 Shih. Shih consists of two trigrams “earth” and “water”, which symbolizes the ground water stored in the earth. I’ve chosen to depict a mountain reflecting itself onto the water surface surrounded by iris’ and the resourceful baby spiders spinning their webs around.
The event was fun and I met lots of great people such as these students from nearby George Fox University. I explained to them about my process of painting and of the I’Ching.
Here is a video snippet of me from the Nest Show Interviews, aired on McMinnville’s local television network – MCM Channel 11. The air times are listed below. Video for The Nest Project was provided by Meadowlake Studios, who create shows throughout the Yamhill Valley exposing the art community to the public.

The weekend show was a fantastic experience. The town of Carlton was welcoming to everyone attending, especially friends visiting from out-of-town like Portland and Vancouver. What a memorable day! I loved broadcasting live. That gave me an opportunity to share the gallery with my friends & family from out-of-state – California, Nevada and the East Coast.
