My husband, Robert Fox, was featured in a magazine “Country Pleasures” focusing on Washington and Oregon.

Note: The author informed Robert that the paper put Silverton in Washington instead of Oregon and has already contacted the editors so they can rectify the error.

A “shout out” to Sarah Brentyn for translating the pdf’s to jpegs.  Thanks!!

Lunaria – Spring Show

Jane Castelan Buccola and Robert Fox collaborated for Lunaria’s Spring Show.  Buccola, with her bold pastels, oils, and acrylic flowers looked lovely with Fox’s glass flowers.

“First Friday’s” at the Lunaria Gallery in Silverton, Oregon USA, was a big success as you can see from the smiles on the two artists featured.  Other artists were there and the entire gallery was decked out with samples of each artist’s work.

I was amazed by how beautiful the show was laid out with paintings and flowers sharing colors.

Love the driftwood used to show off a grouping of the flowers.  I was able to bring my favorite home, which is now hanging on our wall.

(Full disclosure, my husband is the glass artist. )

Christmas Pleasures

A few years back, my husband decided to challenge himself by creating a beautiful pastel using angels and things around the house and yard.  He brought in boughs and rose cones from our backyard cedar.   I collected some angels, candles, and ornaments and organized the still life.  It took him days (weeks?) to do the pastel, but once framed, takes center stage over the mantle each Christmas.

As we unpack the angels, my favorite task is to dress the mantle.  I like to place the three angels used in the still life near his art piece.

I remember sharing last year’s mantel in this blog. (Added it below)  It is about the same….little changes.  But still I keep the three angels nestled around the pastel my husband lovingly created for our home.
