Trumpeter Swans at Creamer’s Field

A sure sign of spring in Fairbanks is the arrival of the swans , geese and ducks. The field was plowed and seeded last week, just in time for the first visitors. They came in about 10 days early this year! I took lots of pictures, here are a few.

First Friday

What a great evening. We attended the Interior Artisans 30th Annual Juried Show at the Bear Gallery tonight. The guest juror was Don Decker, google him. He has a very impressive art style.

I had four pieces entered and accepted! Thrills, right? It got better. I had 2 pieces get Honorable Mention Awards. I was told that I was the only artist that had all of their entries accepted. There were 113 entries, 77 were accepted.

Now for the real thrill; a very dear friend attended the show and brought me a gift. She is a very talented young artist and I love her style. Thank you Jen .
