Tag Archives: Twisp

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.

Last week I got to watch this stately bird preen and preen some more in the morning sunshine. The bird didn’t mind me watching and taking pictures and was a lot more cooperative than the Mallards in the nearby pond. Great Egrets nest south of here in central Washington and after they fledge, they disperse to various areas, some going north like this one. Hopefully it will get some sense and migrate south soon, before the beaver ponds freeze over. There was a skim of ice that morning when I watched it and we’ve had smatterings of snow twice this week already.

Living in the Methow there is no shortage of fun stuff to do and often a person needs to make a choice between various planned events. This weekend is the big Rhythm and Blue Festival outside of Winthrop so there are lots of people in town. And motorcycles too. We did not go to the festival. It’s a BIG event. We stuck to smaller things.

There was the Farmers Market in Twisp in the morning. In the afternoon we went out to the Methow Valley Ciderhouse to listen to Danbert Nobacon and Anna Dooley perform in the relaxed atmosphere under the big tent. After that we went into Twisp to enjoy a couple of gallery receptions – at the Confluence and also Donna Keyser’s D*SIGNS. Later in the evening Ken did go visit some friends who live across the river from the Blues Fest and he enjoyed the music from afar.
