I am so excited to show you this next photo from Allison.  She and her husband, Khoi, just added one of my paintings to their collection and it looks fabulous!!  Allison plans on adding some burnt orange pillows which will add a pop of color on the sofa and help tie into the colors of the painting.  Look at how the lines of the curtain go with the lines of the sky in the painting.  It is such a warm, comfortable and happy room!  I’m thrilled that my painting found a beautiful home.

Bright. Vivid. Vibrant.: Carolee Clark – GT News Article

On Tuesday, Sarah Paynes and Amanda Cowan from The Gazette Times in Corvallis Oregon came over to the studio to talk with me about my art and the Philomath Open Studios Tour of which I am a part. They kindly ignored the mess of my studio and encouraged me to talk about my work. Sarah wrote a very nice article and Amanda used only the best photographs of the many, many she took. Thank you Sarah and Amanda for making me look good!

Linda Brown sent me a photo of their new painting hanging in their dining room. Once again I am honored that they have added one of my paintings to their wonderful art collection.  Linda says, “It’s like you painted it while standing in our home it fits so well.”

High praise!  Thank you Linda and Al!
