Showcase at the Inn of the White Salmon

I am so excited and honored to be a featured artist at the Inn of the White Salmon’s Hallway Gallery.

About the Inn:  The décor of our 16-room Inn creates a quiet, cozy environment for your comfort and convenience. Enjoy casual conversation, games, or reading in the family room, or on our outside patio.

Each guest room has a private bath, phone, and cable TV, and high-speed wireless Internet access is available. The rooms are air conditioned in season (please inquire as to dates). We also feature an 8-bed hostel room.

Comfortable and cozy guest rooms aren’t all we have to offer. Public areas include the Columbia Room (stocked with books, games, a big screen TV, Xbox 360, and plenty of comfortable seating), the cheerful, sunny breakfast porch, the patio, and the garden. Beer, wine, and soft drinks are available for purchase at the front desk.

The Inn of the White Salmon hosts many events, such as small weddings, meetings, family reunions, workshops, retreats, and more. Please call or email us to inquire about rates, accomodations, and catering for group events.



I most definitely recommend this lovely Inn, with its wonderful hostess Dennice,  if you are planning a trip to the Columbia River Gorge.  And if you haven’t decided on a vacation yet, this is the place to come and stay for a while!

My artwork will be up from February to beginning of May.  If you are in the area, come check it out during business hours, 0900-1500 M-SA.

I have a few of my Fire Series on one wall and then various Gorge scenes on the other.


Happy Monday ya’ll!!


Le livre du jour: Les Trois Cochons

I have my Louisiana artwork hanging at the White Salmon Library until the end of September.  So what better way to get my name out there than to embarrass my self by reading a story in Cajun French at story time, right?!  Haha!  I thought it would be cool to read the story Les Trois Cochons to the kiddos today.  It is a book that my mom bought for my kids.  I have been trying to teach my kids French little by little. 😀

This is a cute Cajun version of The Three Little Pigs with a very funny ending in my opinion (even though I love wolves).  It isn’t all in French just pieces of words, short sayings and it has the translation at the bottom.  Very cool!

Here is an excerpt from the book:
Ca c’est dommage! Den I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your rice-stalk house in!” yelled the loup-garou.
Happy reading ya’ll!!


I am so sorry!  I up and left for vacation and even though I brought my laptop to update my blog…I haven’t written anything in a week 😦  Sadness…but I promise to do better this week!  Lots of exciting things coming up!

I am a vendor at the 7th annual Art + Wine Fusion happening in downtown White Salmon on Saturday, July 16th at 3:00pm.  This will be my first art show!  I hope to gain lots of valuable experience.  I first need to figure out how to set up a 10×10 canopy, doh!  My husband said he would build me a unit that I can hang some framed artwork on…we will see as we fly home on the 14th and the show is on the 16th :/

Any hoo, I hope to have some posts up this week and I hope everyone had a lovely 4th of July!

Bien a toi,


Mosaic Monday: Art + Wine Fusion inventory build-up!

Because I will be heading out of town this thursday, I have been doing a huge inventory push.  I have been printing some of my photographs and matting them.  I made several notebooks, photo blocks, cards, and postcards.  What I love about this, is seeing my art come to life.  It is one thing to see your photograph on a computer screen.  It is another to see it gracing a frame or glued to a wood block!  What can I say, I love my artwork 😀  And I hope you do as well!

Here are a few pieces I will be selling at our local Art + Wine Fusion here in White Salmon, WA.

1. more framed artwork, 2. various framed pieces, 3. photo wood block start, 4. love is a river named columbia matted, 5. wine explosion matted, 6. swamp tours matted, 7. unmatted odd sized photos, 8. small notebooks, 9. postcards, 10. large notebooks

Busy bee that’s me!

I have neglected the blog the last couple of days…it has been crazy around here!  My daughter had soccer camp all week and I was getting prepared to meet the manager from the gift store at Multnomah Falls!!!  Yes, I showed her some of products and it was a very productive and informative meeting.  Lot’s to think about and get sorted out!

I am heading on vacation this coming week and need to get some stuff sorted for my first ever art show!  I will be attending/vending at the White Salmon Art + Wine Fusion July 16, 2011 😀  I am so excited for this opportunity to show my art to the community.  It should be exciting and I have some fun stuff show off!  Come check it out if you are in town.

I am also gearing up for a gallery showing at the library.  I will have the White Salmon library’s gallery room for the whole month of September!  I am still working out my theme and what pieces I will showcase but I am thinking it may involve Louisiana 😀

Last but not least, I am still finishing up my editing of the White Salmon Backyard Half Marathon.  Here is a link to my gallery:

Mosaic Monday: White Salmon Backyard Half Marathon

I was very fortunate to take race photos at the annual WS Backyard Half Marathon.  I am a runner so I probably should have ran the race but I decided I would rather take some shots at the top!  I went out on thursday to scope out a new way to the top and was lucky to get some gorgeous shots of the Gorge.  Unfortunately, on race day, it was cold and windy and the clouds kept cycling through so that some runners only had a wall of white as their backdrop 😦  It was an awesome learning experience and the folks at the top rocked the aid station!  Here are a few shots from the race:
