first post

  My first blog post.  I'm trying to get organized before the
busy show season and have jumped into the world of cyber space.
  I just set up a Flikr account, Twitter 
and have stocked my Etsy store. 
 My website is updated with many new paintings 
with more to come and a Facebook
presence is pending too.

  I have just returned from a very cold but inspiring trip 
to New York where I saw some incredible art 
at the Metropolitan Museum,
ate some very yummy thin crust pizza and
literally crashed into Ethan Hawke, at a play by Sam Shepard,
 that he was directing.
  Also saw the NY City Ballet perform Sleeping Beauty, 
which was like eating a big cream puff.
  The costumes, lighting and effects 
that the colors created were ethereal.
  Here are some photos from the art museum:

  I'm finishing up painting a chair depicting a dog, bird and girl
for a benefit auction in Portland that helps people who are very
stressed, such as returning veterans.  I'll post the photos soon.
My camera battery went dead.
  The chairs will be placed in shop windows around Portland which should
be fun.


  1. Hi Jill, So glad to discover you've started a blog! A couple of your paintings are currently featured in my "Etsy Favorites" gadget on my blog. You're work brings me much happiness on a daily basis. Good luck at the Buckman sale. Best...Gloria

  2. Thanks Gloria, it's so nice to have continuity with local art lovers.
