Merry Christmas!


Happy holidays from festive New Zealand

Randy and I wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

As you'll see from the photos below, we've safely made it to New Zealand where we're enjoying the warmth in wonderful Whangarei! The beautifully adorned tree above is here at the town yacht basin. 

The Port of Ilwaco gallery may be closed for winter, but I've been busy creating artwork. Scroll just a bit to see what I've been up to! This is such a creative time for me, so you should have plenty to look forward to when the Ilwaco gallery reopens in April. 

Marie Powell Gallery closed until April

My piece "Dusk in Rain Forest" is now showing at RiverSea Gallery in downtown Astoria, Ore.

NZ: Summer Down Under

Beauty blooms in Whangarei, New Zealand


A most wonderful time of year in Whangarei!

We know many of you wouldn't trade traditional winter weather for anything, but Randy and I want to share a slice of "summer down under" with our readers.

Pictured at top are blooming Pohutukawa Trees in Northland, Whangarei, New Zealand. In the background is the new Hundertwasser and Maori Art Museum.

Below that on the right are fresh strawberries from our garden. Sliced strawberries and whipped cream atop Pavlova is a favorite Christmas treat in New Zealand. And to the left is a fragrant hedge of jasmine right out our window.

NEW: Fabulous florals

Blue Iris

I really like this one! I just recently finished this lovely original monotype titled "Blue Iris". Created with oil-inks on 100% heavy rag Arches88 paper, this one is 15" by 22". Enjoy!

Colorful hydrangeas

My new oil-ink monoprint featuring lovely Hydrangeas is unframed and measures 15" by 22". I'm hard at work here in NZ, so keep an eye on Facebook and our website to see new artwork!
