Mother's Pansies

"Mother's Pansies"
Original Watercolor
"14x11" Sold

A book, a plate, a vase with pansies.....I've been reminiscing lately.

We are having such a beautiful summer. The atmosphere reminds me of the great summers of my childhood.

An Artist a Day

An Artist a Day at Bellevue Art & Frame
August 19, 2010
Noon -4pm

Artist in Action, Michele Cooper

Come and see me paint on August 19 at Bellevue Art & Frame's new store!
Every day in August, between noon.and 4 P.M., a different artist will create a painting, drawing, collage, or print in the medium of his or her choice.
Artists will work in the art department. The public is invited to drop in each day to watch as artists create their paintings and drawings. As each piece is finished, the canvases will be returned to their place in the gallery. Bid sheets will accompany each art piece. The public may bid on works by silent auction from August 1 through September 25th.
All funds will benefit the Bellevue Schools Foundation.

Here's how you can help: I have all sorts of ideas of what I should paint and what would be the best subject for an auction like this. Got any ideas? For examples, you can visit my gallery of work on my website at

Please send me your comments and suggestions and I will post them here until August 18.

One week left until end of show

“BRUSHES with the Land” Opens June 18th

Only one week left to see a very strong landscape show! Sorry, I have no image of my artwork in the show. If any of you have been there, let me know what you think.

The 4th annual “BRUSHES with the Land” show runs June 18 through July 18 and features a wide range of Northwest Landscapes by 42 artists from Washington and Oregon. I have been selected as one of the participating artists.

Also, there's an opportunity to paint at my two workshops next weekend. See more information at:
