We are fortunate to have many talented artists here in the Pacific Northwest. It seems to be a part of the Pacific Northwest culture; respecting and encouraging creativity. I don't know if it is our culture that encourages people to pursue their passion here or it is the ever changing climate that stimulates the muse or if artists just gravitate to the sea. Whatever the reason, it does seem like our little corner of the country is brimming with talent. I follow several of their blogs and feel a particular "kinship" from the familiarity of their daily observations.
DJ Pettit, one of our finest, is offering an online class next month to share her Photoshop techniques. I think it is remarkable when an artist feels so comfortable with owning their style that they are willing to reach out and teach others. You can find the details here.
