Studio Visit and Art Auction

"Light on the Flats-Samish" (size 6.5x15") Original Watercolor by Michele Cooper
I had a delightful visit with friends from Bay View today. They came to pick up my donation for the upcoming auction to benefit the Padilla Bay Reserve. After a visit in the garden and free reign to prowl the studio, this is the painting they chose. This is the landscape you experience as you take the back roads toward the estuary. 

Visit the Breazeale Interpretive Center for a wonderful day out this summer. Padilla Bay is one of 29 sites in the National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) established to protect coastal areas for long-term research, monitoring and education, and stewardship.
It's beautifully done with so many ways to learn about and experience the estuary and enjoy exploring the intertidal mud flats or the exhibits indoors. 
The Interpretive Center is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00 to 5:00, and closed on official State holidays.

Don't miss it! Saturday, August 19th, 2017
 About the fundraiser and auction, quoted from the flyer:

This is a benefit fundraiser to support our efforts to help the Reserve with the capital construction costs of adding a Touch Pool Experience to the existing aquarium room exhibits.
We will be serving a sumptuous summer buffet of tastes of Padilla Bay with elements of the cuisine of Maine as we feature an extra focus on our sister Reserve at the historic Laudholm Farm in Wells, Maine.
Our event will also feature both a silent & live auction. We will have live music by Jumbled Pie.
