Stephanie Kirby and The Deb hangin’ at the Kirby/Cooksey house.
Still basking in the glow of the pop-up show, I sit here feeling like I’m one lucky camper. I sold half my stock and I got to meet so many lovely folks as they drifted through Stephanie Kirby’s fabulous home.
The scrumptious food was provided by Jake and Louann over at Worobel Artisinal and they took great care to keep everyone fed and happy. And speaking of happy, the tasty reds and whites were provided by Welcome Road Winery–a local vintner right in our own neighborhood here in West Seattle. It was just a lovely day to mingle, talk art and sip wine.
Jake and Louann from the awesome Worobel Artisanal. Thanks for taking such good care of everyone, kids!
This week I had a few calls from folks mulling purchases and following up. Rebecca Hale came and picked up a bird and even sent a pic, saying, “It doesn’t look quite as lonely in that space. I love it.” I’m so glad the little bird found a good home, Rebecca. It’ll be spring year round now!
If you’ve got photos of a painting in your space, I’d love to see it. Send along and I’ll post to Facebook!

Please join me for a pop-up art show at the home of Stephanie Kirby and Nick Cooksey on July 16th to view my new series ‘Beauty in Decay’. Sumptuous, light appetizers to be provided by Worobel Foods. Wine provided by award-winning vintners Welcome Road Winery. A good time is promised so stop by for some nibbles and libations and to chat about the new work.
“I strive to bring the same kind of earthy complexity the great potters and ceramicists achieve in their work. The chemistry producing natural imperfections in a fiery kiln is something I’m trying to replicate in a cold, one dimensional process. I apply acids, scratch and sand and generally do all I can to give the work depth and emotion. These surfaces convey a natural aging, a beautiful decay, if you will, taking on the essence of stone, water…history. Behind it all is a love for materials, natural processes and arrangement. Making a painting is an exciting thing to do. I hope that comes across in the work.”
