I curated a small garden show for Skagitonians to Preserve Farmland, which is my favorite local group trying to keep farming alive in Skagit Valley. My intentions are purely selfish as I am just interested in having rural farm scenes to paint. Several local artists: Becky Fletcher, Thaïs Armstrong, Al Currier, Alison Johnston, Anne Martin-McCool and myself participated. I loaded the paintings up and took the ferry to Mossyrock Farm on Lopez Island for a beautiful day of sunshine, good food and smiling faces. Al and I even sold some paintings.
