Wood turned bowls by Daniel Harris.

Signed by the artist.  Each bowl is one of a kind using big leaf maple, holly, spalted maple, spalted pine and plum woods.


Strike off featuring a close up of a coffee table top with inlaid shells by Ted Lively.

Materials are found in the beauty of decay, using vacated zone lines that the tree offered in its spalting process, the gifted wood artist will apply turquoise and/or crushed abalone shells and finishes the surface with a water based lacquer.

Table surface is created from a root wad that includes the root mass or root ball of a tree plus a portion of the trunk.
Fun fact: The wood artist learned to craft root wads while working as a stump-grinder.

Seaside First Saturday Art Walk

Fairweather House and Gallery

612 Broadway

Fairweather House and Gallery offers an exploration between the study of botany and fine art.

The opening reception for Observing Botany, the gallery’s April exhibition, presents original artworks in watercolor, graphite, colored pencil and pen & ink and the exploration of the many styles, forms and approaches unique to botanical illustration.

Regional artists will be on hand at the exhibit to answer questions, provide interesting facts or anecdotes about Observing Botany.

Featured April artists are Nick Brakel, Lori Bedard, Diane Copenhaver, Penelope Culbertson , JoAnn Pari-Mueller, among others.

In addition, the gallery introduces new artist, Patti Isaacs, who paints on silk.

Seaside/Gearhart naturalist and biologist, Neal Maine, will speak about the ecology of the coastal habitat at 6: pm. Artist Carolyn Macpherson will offer a Seaside Painting LIVE ™ episode. Free fused glass art demonstration by Lori Bedard.

 “Nature is beauty sublime. To use the botanical as a subject for art, invokes memories of that beauty and how it inspires each of us. As an artist, if we incite that reaction with each view; we were successful.” —Lori 

LIVE music by Shirley 88.

“Lately, I’ve been fascinated by the idea of objects as functional, not in how they hold liquid or whatever, but in how they hold history.” Tim Christensen, potter

“There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellular, like a laborious mosaic.” Anaiis Nin

And, too, a grace note:

“Love your fabulous blog. Thank you for your wonderment and the joy you bring to so many.” –Anny

Fun Fact:

Anny’s birthday was in March.  Not hard to forgot the date.  It’s the only birthday that is a verb: “March Forth”.


100% cotton ribbon yarn crocheted into an infinity cowl, intended to coordinate with the wool/silk top.

The crochet stitch is called moss stitch, or linen stitch.

The feel of the yarn fabric is soft.

Indeed, so superbly soft and versatile.

Hand made by Karen Johnson, textile and jewelry artist.



100% acrylic bulky yarn cowl in shades of lime green, beige, cream, gray-blue and dark gray.

It’s a transitional-weather item.

Yarn is Isaac Mizrahi roving, in color “Sutton”.




Merino wool and silk DK weight knit popover top.

The color is lime alternating with cool gray.

It is  mostly stockinette stitch, with a lattice yoke and seed stitch armhole edges.

“I  like the crinkly look of the yarn (it’s that way because I had to “frog” most of the front, to re-apportion the yarn).”  –Karen Johnson




Q: How, you might ask, did the weather quote “in like a lion, out like a lamb” quote about come to be?
A: Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see warm, spring-like days, or late season blizzards, you can understand …

If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. … Weather folklore sayings are as colorful as our imagination. … So, if a month came in bad (roaring like a lion), it should go out good and calm (docile, like a lamb).



 “The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by. 
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here.”
–  Author Unknown

Fun Facts:

Karen Johnson was Fairweather’s first  jewelry artist.

Karen has designed more than 900 unique necklaces, bracelets and earrings for the gallery.

Recently, Karen was approached to repair a vintage brooch for a customer.

Karen researched, found the matching lapis gemstone, completed the repair  and had the brooch hand couriered to the gallery for delivery.


Karen is a dear Fairweather  friend, artist, and neighbor.

Indeed, Karen resides right across the street!

Rox particularly likes experimenting and learning new techniques and skills. In addition, she has taken classes from Patty Gray, Miriam Di Fiore, Raphael Schnepf, Roger Thomas, and Kelly Crosser Alge to further her knowledge.
