Napa Valley Open Studios 2011

It's that time! I've been counting down for months now, but it's hard to believe that Napa Valley Open Studios begins this Saturday.

Map to Studio # 9, 1734 Scott Street, St. Helena

You can find me in St. Helena this year, at Ed Breed's glass studio, at 1734 Scott Street. Ed is this year's catalog cover artist, and he'll be giving glassblowing demonstrations during the weekend, too. (You know, last year I shared space with Yvonne Henry, last year's catalog cover artist – lucky me!)

Ed is also creating a mini-pumpkin patch, made with his glass pumpkins. And I'm bringing sketches and block prints in addition to painting. I considered giving relief printing demonstrations, but I don't think I'll have time! I will, though, have a painting in process, and I'll be glad to explain how my painting process works. We'll be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, Saturday and Sunday, September 17 - 18 and 24 - 25. Will we see you there? I hope so!


  1. Happy to have found and joined your blog. I look forward to learning from you here! So glad to have met you at the Paint Out. I am such a beginner...but wanting to do more.

  2. Thank you so much, Lynn! It was so nice to meet you at the Paint Out. It was a fun event, wasn't it? And about beginning - we're all beginning at something. I try to approach all my artwork with a spirit of discovery - there's always something new to learn. Keeping a beginner's mind - it's very Zen, isn't it?
