Both The Winthrop Gallery and the Confluence Gallery hung new shows this week and I have new work in each show.

At The Winthrop Gallery, the theme is Methow Wonderland. I brought in two pieces showing Alpenglow on mountains that I can see from my house. One of my favorite things is to watch the sunlight spread over the snow-covered mountains as I have my coffee in the morning. Today is overcast so that won’t happen.


The Winthrop Gallery is open from 10:00 til 5:00 Thursday through Monday.


At The Confluence Gallery in Twisp, Caryl Campbell curated a show titled Weathering Change. I had this in mind while I was traveling through Utah in November.

The Confluence is open Wednesday through Friday from 10:00 til 5:00, and on Saturday from 10:00 til 3:00. There will be a reception tomorrow, Saturday the 12th from 5:00 til 7:00 pm.

Here are a few pieces from a series I just finished on War Memories. I made the original images at Fort Casey, on Whidbey Island. It is part of a circle of forts around the entrance to Puget Sound, originally built for defensive purposes but mainly used for housing and training soldiers in preparation for war and during wartimes. Most of these forts are now Washington State Parks and open for viewing.

I used the images to create photo encaustics, printing the photos on tissue paper and embedding them in a mixture of beeswax and damar resin, a tree sap. They are mounted on cradled boards and have many layers of wax giving them a three-dimensional feel. These pieces will be for sale at the Winthrop Gallery and the Confluence Gallery during the holiday shows.
