"On the Island" SOLD

“On the Island”
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel

Look how cute my little home away from home was at the Whidbey Island workshop! 
 It was STUFFED with art books of every shape, size and description…had an amazing coffee maker (see the red Nespresso) …
Soft cotton sheets and cookies in the cookie jar..er at least there were cookies in that cookie jar 
(…sorry Cary!)
 Just next door was Cary Jurriaan’s studio (my host for this workshop and amazing artist herself!) 
LOVE her collection of palettes!  
All kinds of artists from Robert Johnson to Carol Marine have left a colorful palette and signed it for Cary to hang in her studio. 
I was tickled to be added to the wall:)))
Just a few of the palettes!
From creamy, dreamy, hand spun yarn
to a ton of fun little tiles that reminded me of a certain black and white someone
Whidbey Island was a visual feast! 
(okay, I didn’t just consume the cookies with my eyes…I snorkeled them down.  Good thing they only weigh luggage at the airport…just sayin’)

And that all happened before the workshop began…

As the paintings started accumulating (and 5 days painting produced an amazing stack of work!)

Well, it just kept getting more and more amazing.
I nearly had to put my eyes on a diet from “over-eating”..;)
Is there a visual over-eaters anonymous 12 step program??
Just wonderin’.

    Beautiful! I can really feel the heat while I’m soaking up the sun’s glorious rays on this beach.

    I love your home-away-from-home in Whidbey Island. It looks so warm, friendly, inviting, cozy and oomfy, as does Cary’s studio, as well (love those signed palettes as wall hangings – great idea and cool conversation pieces, too).

    How cool must it be to be a resident of Whidbey Island! And Whidbey Island itself sounds like something akin to paradise. I was just reading a brand new on-line magazine called ‘Bread’ about a baker who lives and makes his living there. Can’t remember his name, but will get back to you with the info, or I’ll send you the link. It’s a beautiful on-line zine, by the way – if you’re into baking like I am, it is a true baker’s delight.

    What can I say about all the artists’ amazing paintings – beautiful, inspiring, vivid and happy are just a few words, but there are so many more I could apply to these paintings. I am in love with colour – which is why I love all your paintings as much as I do, Dreama. These artists clearly love colour and love what you do, as well. I want to be just like one of them, when I grow up, LOL.

    I know I must sound like a broekn record, but oh how I’d love to have been there.

    Can’t wait to see more visual abundance from the next batch of photos from Whidbey Island,and of course, we all want to know what the latest is with your Eddie Bill.

    Thanks for sharing not only this beautiful painting, but also, your adventures in a beautiful place called Whidbey Island.ReplyCancel
