Issaquah Art Walk

The Issaquah Art Walk is held on the first Friday of the month during the summer.
I had the honor and the privilege to participate in the Issaquah Art Walk August 7, 2007. I was one of the featured Christian Artists who had works displayed at the Meadow Creek Church located at 65 Front St. Issaquah, WA ( )
The newly renovated Meadow Creek Church was transformed into a stunning art gallery for the evening. I was amazed at the steady flow of people who wandered in and out during the 4 hours of the art walk. It was fun to see old friends and meet new ones.
Not only did I get to display some of my paintings for the evening I also had the opportunity to share some of my painting skills with those who stopped by. Most of this sunflower was painted during the art walk...with only a few touches added back in my studio. I have some additional tweaks to put in on the leaves before I call it complete but I wanted to share it with you on my blog as a work in progress.
FYI--I have a sunflower class coming up in September so watch for more of the beauties as they start to bloom on my watercolor paper.
Your comments are welcome!

Sounds like you enjoyed the event! I've been on a city's Art Walk of Whittier, but that was very hectic, and a wide range of artists - a lot of dark art, if you know what I mean.
Love the sunflower!
