My new venture into serving my community

My Family is buying Wright Away Delivery in our beautiful little town of Port Townsend Washington.



The founders and current owners are passing their baby on to us and we are so excited!!

We could use a little help though and I have made a GoFundMe page to help us with the expenses of transferring a business.  See the link below

McClaves Wright Away


We are also employing our children


I will still have time and energy now to make art and with a steady income I will be able to afford life again and some of the bills we have incurred while out of work.  Thank you all so much for looking, sharing, reading and supporting me. Love and hugs, Laurie

New upcoming show, auction and an art project with YAY! LA Mag

I am working on a new piece for the Muses show at Penumbra gallery in Portugal and A CopyCat Violence Auction for March.. The auction is a ‘studies’ theme, so expect a lot of drawing, sketches and doodles. Please head over to the Copycat Violence Facebook page for details and times.

For Summer, YAY! LA Mag is doing another Art series, but this time the theme is ‘Legends Everyday’  I chose Excalibur, one of my favorite movies of all time.  I love the story and the legend and the characters.  I am especially fond of Morghana…  Helen Mirren is fantastic!
