This is my teacher, mentor and good friend, Trish Harding. She is a wonderful artist and a great teacher. She knows an amazing amount about creating art. She is facile in many media including oils, acrylics, water colors, pastels and ceramics. Those of us in Bellingham who paint with her in Open Studio and take her classes are so very lucky. Today I photographed some of her paintings and made a couple of portraits of her for her to send with application materials and post on her website. She is the best!
