For BLOOM, original art by Bev Drew Kindley
“We celebrate spring even more after a particularly dark season, when signs of renewal have appeared much later than usual. Sometimes we need a bouquet of flowers to keep our spirits up, to remind us of the joy.” –artist Bev Drew Kindley
Bev Drew Kindley, a native Oregonian, with dual degrees in art and philosophy, paints to understand the inspiration of unique moments of light with impressionistic works of art that are to viewed as visual celebrations. “It’s my way of communicating with the world. My hope is to encourage appreciate and protection of our heritage and world.”

Gretha Lindwood uses vibrant color and strong design, hallmarks of art work, developed during a career as an illustrator and graphic designer. Another lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, the artist cherishes landscapes honed by water and time and delight in capturing their beauty in the lush colors of pastels or oils to share with the viewer.

For BLOOM, original acrylic on linen by Susan Curington
Susan Curington, is thrilled to paint light dancing through a flower petal. Color and luminosity moves the artist in the way music moves others. “I love the surprises inherent in creating art, both in looking closely and carefully, and in applying paint to canvas.”
“I am third generation on my rural, wooded land; I have known particular trees since childhood. Living in the thick of nature daily and seeing the stars at night—I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything. Through my paintings I hope to express the profound gratitude I feel for the power and beauty of Nature.” –artist Susan Curington
