Tag Archives: Twisp

I’ve been working with a student at the Independent Learning Center (ILC) in Twisp this fall. He showed interest in photography early in the quarter and his teachers asked if I’d mentor him as he pursued this interest. We have spent time talking about photography, going on photo walks and working on the computer – learning about photo processing. I have little experience with teaching so it’s a learning experience for both of us. He is an eager learner, ready to pursue new topics and also a good listener. It’s been fun.

The ILC is located on the TwispWorks campus. We visited some of the studios on the campus and walked around the adjoining neighborhood and to the park at the confluence of the Twisp and Methow River. Hopefully soon we will have snow-covered backdrops to explore.

Looking through the photos from our walks, I miss the colors of fall. Especially on this foggy dark November day.

A morning at the farmers’ market points out the fertility of our region. All the products at the Methow Valley Farmers’ Market in Twisp are produced in Okanogan County with most from the Methow Valley. And local artists are well represented too! So much amazing creativity and fertility.

Twisp has a terrific Fourth of July Parade! No doubt about it. It celebrates lots of stuff that folks around her love – horses, dogs, firefighters, EMT’s, kids doing fun stuff, our local non profits, and even the 30th anniversary of a first date. It’s all so positive!

 

 

Methow Arts Fest happens right after the parade. For Arts Fest photos, see my gallery on Facebook. Hopefully that link takes you to a public gallery on Facebook.

I am quite certain that Twisp hosts one of the best small town parades around. It has horses, music (played by small children with violins), dogs, political causes and lots of fun. What more could you want?

I continue to work on photo encaustics this winter. Three of my new pieces are hanging in the new show – Shadow and Light – at The Confluence Gallery in Twisp. Photo encaustics are a combination of photos, beeswax and pigments. For this series I have been embedding the photo in the beeswax on a wooden substrate. I hope you have a chance to see this show in person.
