Dancing and Narentstseg

Posted by on 01 Aug 2009 | Tagged as: Paintings


I called the painting of the tree dancing because the tree seemed to be dancing, as much as a tree can dance. The sunflower is called Narentstseg because that is my Mongolian name. It means sunflower. My apologies to my Mongolian friends for my incorrect spelling.

I have finally finished the Artist Challenge. It was a challenge, but I am glad I did it.  I think I am finally over the leaves. All of these will be for sale at the Ink People in Eureka at 411 12th St. starting this Saturday, Dec. 6th through Dec. 13.

Artist Challenge

Posted by on 20 Nov 2008 | Tagged as: Paintings

Every year the Ink People host a fund raiser called Artist Challenge. The challenge is to do 15 completely new works of art in 30 days. They all have to be the same size, but medium and canvas can be different. Then the art will  be on sale at the Ink People for the month of December. I am 17 days into the challenge and I have 12 pieces done. Here is what I have photos of so far. These are all 8×10 which is a smaller field than I am use to, thus the challenge.

Here is the last of my Japanese Maples, I call it Sad, Sorry Stereotype


Not What you Think

This is the second in my series of three. I know what it looks like and it is not what you think. I am sorry for the quality of the photo. As I said I am having camera difficulties. Right now these painting are hanging in the Radiation and Oncology unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Eureka.


Japanese Maple

Posted by on 05 Nov 2008 | Tagged as: Paintings

I painted this last summer but I was having camera trouble so I am finally getting it up now. I was not going to paint a Japanese Maple leaf because it looks so much like other kinds of leaves that are ever so prevelent in my neck of the woods. I, for one, am thoroughly sick of said leaves and the lifestyle that seems to come with them. So this is my tiny little protest againist the dominiate business in my community.

Here is my latest painting. I did not have a board big enough so I used several smaller boards I salvaged from the cabinet shop.


Also, Clark’s cloak as mentioned in my last post, is now holding court at an accountant’s firm on the corner of 4th and F st in Eureka,  anyone in the area can go visit him. Or go by the Morris Graves Museum in town and get a map for the Art in Motion art walk and see all the sculptures.

Old Stuff

Here are a few of my flower paintings that I did several years ago. I have been lazy with the paintings as of late, mostly because I was in Thailand for two weeks and then catching up to California time last week. And then of course busy making cards. I collected lots of leaves, ticket stubs and trash while I traveled around South Asia.

The daisy I painted as a thank you to a friend who helped with our daughter’s wedding, the poppies were my first commission, the sunflower was a gift to a good friend, the fuschia was just because and so was the daffodil.

I moved my paintings this week from the Humboldt Area Foundation to Humboldt Orthopedics. Including these two new paintings. Which do not have names.

The leaf that modeled for this painting came from Tombstone Arizona. Once I finished the painting it reminded me of the hills around Tombstone, thus its name. I painted this to replace Autumn Way, which was up at the Humboldt Area Foundation but is now safely back in my bedroom where it belongs. So if you want to see Tombstone you can stop by the Humboldt Area Foundation.
