It’s time to mix up more of that “Birgit Grey”!

#Birgit O’Connor Watercolor is starting another session of Atmospheric Landscapes online starting December 15th.  I highly recommend this class!

Cascade Falls

Cascade Falls

I don’t think this was the actual Cascade Falls of Moran State Park, but it is a pretty little waterfall that flows out of Cascade Lake in the park and down into Cascade bay.

We had a lovely time moored just off this little waterfall and also visiting Rosario and the historic home of shipbuilder and a former Seattle governor,  Robert Moran.  The construction is impeccable and “ship-shape”.  Just one example- the interior doors are two inch thick solid Honduras mahogany which is not as red as Phillipine mahogany and probably totally unavailable for modern construction

FYI- Rosario is a popular spot on Orcas Island.

Napa Library Exhibit

I did it!  I actually made the deadline completing 32 artworks and installing them in the Napa County Library yesterday.

For those of you interested in the business side of art, I thought I’d describe my exhibit process.  I took some extra time to lay out the work on paper.  It made for a late night previous to installation day, but it really made the actual install go smoothly.

I made a quick line drawing of the exhibit area in Photoshop and then created small tiles of each artwork and placed them on the layout.  I didn’t pay attention to sizes or quality of the tiles.  I just wanted to co-ordinate the subjects and color palettes a bit.

I’ve included a web-friendly version of my layout here.  This preview worked really well, and I only ended up swapping two of the images in the actual display.
