Scenes from Twisp

Hills above Twisp, Washington
Hills above Twisp, Washington – the hills were actually quite green, especially for this time of year (a reflection of the wet spring Washington has had this year), but I liked this black & white interpretation better than the color version

Last weekend Tanya and I traveled to Twisp, Washington to stay with friends at their cabin. The cabin sits on a hillside overlooking the Twisp River. We spent a lot of time relaxing, reading, eating and drinking. It was a great time. I did not get my camera out much – this wasn’t suppose to be photo weekend, but a time with friends. However, I did take a few shots. Here are a few scenes from Twisp I hope you enjoy.

Summer is the time of art festivals. This summer, I have pieces hanging in three juried art festivals here in the Puget Sound region. So, if you happen to be in the region, and want to see some good art, visit one of these festivals.

Kent Summer Art Exhibit – features painting, photography, pencil drawings, mixed media, and other 2-dimensional art. The exhibit opened yesterday and runs through August 26th. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (closed holidays). The exhibit is held at the Centennial Center Gallery, 400 W Gowe St, Kent, Washington. My piece “Waiting for Spring”, a photograph printed on canvas, will be on display.
