I just have to share… Darin Reid and I are engaged to be hitched. We were happy to announce the news yesterday to our friends and family at the annual Casa Coryell-Martin cider party. 

Other news, Saturday I had a wonderful time giving two demos at the Seattle Daniel Smith and next month, November 16, I will give a workshop on painting mountains. I’d love to have you join me! And finally, another bird for my species list… the Rock Dove, aka common pigeon.
