walla walla pastel artist

We have 50 paintings hanging! The smallest is 3×5″ and the largest is 3×5′! And…lots in between.

The dogs can’t figure out what is going on with all the moving stuff around and hammering. I think they must be thinking we are moving. They are getting daily outings with either Les or I when we run errands and that is a big hit.

I am working on cards today and some tiles for coasters. I am using the “Staz-on” inks and imprinting the tiles with stamp art then a light spray of sealer. They turn out very cool. I put felt “bumpers” on them for feet so they protect the table surface they sit on. There’s a specialty shop here that carries these, and they sell for $22/ea! MUCH better prices at the show this weekend!!
I had more art print cards printed; new images. Saw the prototypes last night and they looked good. I will also have a few 5×7 and 8×10 images of some paintings printed. I am looking for things that I can take out to Saviah Cellars for barrel tasting as well…and I think some little prints will be good. The WW Artist’s Alliance has very cool post cards for sale (will have some here for my open houses and also at Saviah). There are 15 different images from 15 artists and they sell for $17.95.
I had an email from Betty, my sister, today and she does these awesome wreaths and things; also does these great metal art objects…next year she is going to be part of the show….Hope you read this Bets! In case I forget to tell ya
I’m off to the studio to work…

About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith
