Where to find my art

 

Many have asked where might I find my art? Since the pandemic started I have to admit I have been a bit more reclusive in showing my works. However, I am stepping up my game and getting back to "normal". Right now you can find my work (cards and original art works) in a few different places. 

In the Pacific Northwest I have work at:

The Wild Bird Chalet in Bellingham, WA

A New Leaf Florist Shoppe in Bellingham, WA

A Lot of Flowers in Fairhaven, WA

In Arizona I have cards at:

The Sonoran Desert Inn and Conference Center Gift Shop

The Copper Javelina Glass Art Studio and Gift Shop 

These wonderful vendors have been amazing in their support of local artists. I hope you get a chance to visit them. If you can't get to the wonderful places you can also find my work in my Etsy Shop SalnoranStudios. I try to keep it stocked with original works as well as cards. If you don't see something in the shop but it is on the website and not indicated as sold - drop me a line and I'm sure we can connect you up. 

If you are a vendor and interested in carrying any of my works drop me a line. I would love to hear from you.

Python Patterns


Stepping away from my more familiar avian art I had some fun with some herptefaunal forms. 

This piece is inspired by a friends Reticulated Pythons.  I took some liberty with the colors and designs,  but this species is so variable there must be a doppelganger out there somewhere.  8"x10" acrylic and metal leaf on wood panel.

Riding The Wind

 

Riding The Wind. 16"x20" acrylic on canvas. 

I am a lover of Corvids (not to be confused by covid)! This piece is a revisit of a similar raven I did for a commission a few years ago. I enjoyed it so much I thought I would do another. Let me know if you would like him in your house!

Flying Toward the Light

 

I just finished this piece. I was inspired by Spring, migration and the search for balance in developing this piece. 29"x18.5" Acrylic and metal leaf on a spalled (did I spell that right?) maple wood panel. click to see the whole painting!

 The Birds Show!


I always look forward to the late winter "bird show" at the Smith and Vallee Gallery in Edison each year. It is perfectly timed for the peak of winter birding in the Samish Flats area. This show is full of top notch bird art. This year I have submitted Northwest Carver. This piece is acrylic and metal leaf on a beautiful repurposed wood panel. The show runs through the month of February. Head on over and enjoy a morning birding pickup a lunch at one of the wonderful eateries in Edison and then walk through this jaw dropping exhibit.
