Fernbridge is turning 100 years old in 2011. Its cement structure has a tremendous history to its credit withstanding the many floods and being the important guardian to the Ferndale Valley. This 11" x 29" watercolor painting honors its longevity and a major transportation vehicle to the valley people.

I titled this painting "Local Treasures"...wine and cheese of Humboldt County! Did you know Humboldt County has about 23 wineries??? The cheese is the wonderful Cypress Grove "Humboldt Fog"...a semi-soft aged goat cheese of the cleanest, purest goats milk in the area...yielding goat cheese from heaven in my opinion! I'm ramping up to paint a handful of paintings that are all about wine. It'll be fun. 8" x 10" oil on linen panel.
I think ranunculas are my favorite flower. I set this little arrangement up and of course my husbands' great grandmothers' teapot found a way into the composition. I love to paint that curvy, silver, tarnished old pot. This one is 5" x 7" oil on board.
