The River's Journey

We have arrived....

It has been an incredible journey, with twists and turns, highs and lows, dearth and drama!  Water is precious and we all need to be informed in order to care for this resource.  Discover the facts about how we manage our water resource through beautifully rendered gouache paintings. Be the first to see these diminutive gems, which are all for sale at the Wildling Museum this Saturday, February 17.

Sneak Preview Party 3:30pm with Raffle for one of six paintings! The $75 ticket helps get our book into our schools and libraries.

Opening Reception at 5:30pm is free.

Enjoy your trip to Solvang, and swing by my other show at the Elverhoj Museum.  I have an interesting piece in this book art show. What? Book Art?  You will have a new appreciation of book arts when you see these incredibly designed pieces.


BOGO, of all BOGOs

The Rivers' Journey:One Year, Six Artists, Ninety-Two Miles

Yes, the show is finally here.  Of course, it's been longer than a year, and so many wonderful people have helped the six artists along the way, but we have traversed the 92 miles and more!  And what we have learned, is not to be missed!

Please come celebrate with us at our


on Saturday, February 17th, 3:30pm.

Be a giver and a getter all at the same time. 

#1. Be a Giver.

  • Your ticket supports the publication of a beautiful catalog that holds essays and thoughts from our community experts and Rose Compass artists. This carries important water awareness forward. We are donating catalogs to our schools and libraries.

#2. Be a Getter.

  • You get a beautiful catalog that holds essays and thoughts from our community experts and Rose Compass artists.
  • You get a chance to win one of six gouche gem-like paintings.  The odds are really good because we are only selling 125 tickets.  And you don't even have to be there to win.  Don't worry if you can't make the party, support the project.
  • You get to come to the special sneak peak extravaganza.  You will be the first to see the work and claim your piece.  The work sold supports the Wildling Museum and future exhibitions.
  • You get to support a worthy project.  We want you there!  You are the people we want to celebrate and thank for your support in our journey.

A BOGO in this case, is Buy One, Get Three Benefits


Welcome to the New Year 2018

Good Bye 2017....and all your drama.  The Thomas Fire seemed to upstage the holiday, but not our love for one another.  I wish you the best of all things, great and small in 2018!

From Susan Bush at Sullivan Goss, An American Gallery.  We hereby cordially invites you to the OPENING FOR THE 100 GRAND EXHIBITION, TAKE 2.

The original opening was scheduled for 1st Thursday, December 7th. (400 Intrepid and Devoted Friends and Fans showed up.) Of course, this little thing called THE LARGEST WILDFIRE IN MODERN CALIFORNIA HISTORY was ablaze, which depressed turnout both during the opening and in the weeks that have followed.  If you wanta 100 GRAND opening, this is your second chance: 1st THURSDAY, January 4th from 5-8pm…
