Yesterday I stopped by an Open Studio reception for Artist Kristina Hagman at Sideral Press in Tukwila.  I have written about Kristina and her Art several times on the DANIEL SMITH Blog and her "36 Views of Mt Rainier".  I was excited to see her work again, and for the first time, ALL 36 prints were hanging on a single wall.  It is striking to see the prints all together...just awesome like Mt Rainier itself as you look up to see the prints laid out 3 high and 12 across.
 
Sidereal Press is in a renovated "barn" and is a gorgeous space where owner Sheila Coppola works with artists hand printing the artwork on some amazing presses.  Sheila and Kristina showed me the cool old press (I think I was told it was a newspaper letterpress) that they pulled Kristina's' prints from.  They gave me a little demo to show me how it worked, which was fascinating.  Thank you Kristina and Sheila!

Seattle’s’ Urban Villages blog is experiencing a renaissance….

After having "disappeared" for a while, I am re-inspired to begin blogging again here at Seattle's Urban Villages
***
 
I have been actively blogging for DANIEL SMITH Artist's Materials on the DanielSmithBlog (over 2 years & 267 posts so far!) and have been their Social Media (Facebook & Twitter) Specialist since late last June which has kept me busy while I was on what turned out to be, a real estate hiatus.  For a number of reasons, I was not feeling very engaged with real estate (the blog, & other things) and this hiatus had been beneficial for me to re-energize and re-connect for this renaissance.
 
It's actually feeling very exciting to step back into the Real Estate Market (the blog, & other things) again.  I have re-thought my purpose, and this gestational period has allowed me to grow in many ways that will benefit my clients, friends, family, and myself.
 
There is a lot for me to write about here on the blog, about Seattle Real Estate and Seattle's Urban Villages, Art will be featured, AND I have a lot to say about a wide range of topics as well. 
 
 As Captain Picard would say....."Engage!"
