Sushi Dinner at Home

Erin decided that she wanted to learn to make sushi — here she is preparing the rice (with Ruairi working the fan).

The results were delicious!

The Mermaid Bench

  • "Two Mermaids", just arrived at the Venetian in Hillsboro where they will be on display until the auction

    Here is a picture of one of my latest projects. Sequoia Gallery + Studios is having a fundraising auction and the artists are decorating used tables and chairs to be auctioned off. The tables and chairs are supposed to be examples of recycling and reusing. I found a fabulous pair of mannequin torsos at the Goodwill, along with an old cast iron table base. I designed, painted and assembled “Two Mermaids”. Barry made the wooden bench top. Two of my artist friends, Paula & Kathleen, created the tail cushion and the jewelry. This was a really fun project! I hope that it sells for a good price at the auction.
