My wife and I are adapting to our new location in the Northwest near Seattle. It is a major change from many years in Dallas, TX. New roads to travel, friends to make and of course art to see. The views are spectacular when not obscured by clouds and rain. Mt Rainier is spectacular when present and about a two hour drive away even though it looks like it is in your backyard.
As Keith Livingston Design I have been blog silent for too long but I still am making jewelry and art. Studio resources are limited at the moment but that is a short-term problem with a fix on the way. The art gallery scene in the Northwest is very active and supportive of area artists. I am in the process of finding a match for my wood sculptures. I have a new wholesale account in La Conner, WA for my mobiles and jewelry and a few more are in the works.
A snapshot of my new Northwest home is that people truly enjoy the outdoors regardless of the weather, scuba diving in 50-degree water is popular, boating, sailing and fishing are common place and snow sports are easily accessible. Recreation is nature driven but we have tasted lots of local micro brews and visited a few small local wineries. Our kayaks are ready and waiting to help us explore our new home. Creativity and inspiration are everywhere.
Talk to you soon,
