Evening in Mo i Rana looking toward the Swedish border From Spirit Walker, 1993, by Nancy Wood My most treasured book at home is Hollering Sun by Nancy Wood. It was published as a children’s book, but it is fit for any age. Wood gives words to that I fumble to find visually to describe my emotional state and relationship to nature and society. I’m still processing last summer in Iceland…and this latest road trip through Norway up to Mo iRead More
I received a wonderful Christmas present last year–a watercolor daily calendar and it gives me a Twitter sized morsel of info and challenge to sketch a watercolor and think a minute about past and present artists’ strategies to create paintings. See the post and Like to follow the remainder of the year.

LESS IS MORE. Judging from the comments of visitors who sent me their photos and impressions of the show, I think it benefited from not having too many pieces hanging in the annual show, as has been the case sometimes in the past. The first place winner Jui-Lien Sanderson’s ‘Afternoon Glow’ also exemplifies the aesthetic that benefits from such a show–the simple, yet very personal view of the artist in depicting a cat in repose. I was also pleased toRead More
