Moving to Gig Harbor WA!

We are moving to beautiful Gig Harbor
next weekend! For those who don't know Gig Harbor,
it is a small forest community out on the Puget Sound
in the Olympic Peninsula just across from Seattle... lots
of rain, trees, ocean, lakes, mountains, bald eagle and LANDSCAPE
PAINTING!! I plan to break out the old easel and oil paints so I can
start painting large again. I will also be set up to work from
home as a remote artist for Dreamworks. These are some
photos I took of our house and the surrounding areas
of Gig Harbor.

Hi Mike,

I've enjoyed your blog for the last couple years. I live in the Burbank/Glendale area, so I'll miss your renderings of the local sights, but what an awesome place you're moving to.

Best wishes.

Good luck Mike! Sounds like a great arrangement to me -- and what a great landscape to paint. I'll be checking your blog to see what you post. -- Kevin

Too bad you won't have any landscape subject matter to paint up there...wait. Oh, yeah. Freaking Washington is going to be amazing for a painter like you! My friend has lived in Gig Harbor for years and loves it. All the best to you and I hope to see some Gig Harbor-inspired paintings soon! :)

Hi Mike,

welcome to Seattle! I am a recently graduated art centerite who has admired your work for a long time. I have had countless fellow art center peers who have taken classes and/or workshops with you and I have always wanted to do the same but you stopped teaching before I was eligible to take the course. Alas!

I hope your transition into seattle is a seamless one! Once again, welcome welcome!

Hi Mike,
How about a blast from the past? It's Beth Burke now Breyfogle. I attended a production of "Guys & Dolls" yesterday that three young men from my church were cast. It brought back HS memories and so I began looking up names of people I remembered in the AHS production.

I'd love to get in touch with Lenore and Natalie. I am definately going to add your blog and Edmond's blog to my links.

Keep in touch!

Oh you lucky so-and-so! Gig Harbour's one of the sweetest communities on the Peninsula. Color me ten kinds of jealous. May you enjoy the Pacific Northwest to the fullest and may that land treat you kindly. You'll be missed. I got an awful lot out of that demo you taught at LCAD. Thank you for being so willing to give back.
