(from Scales and Measures exhibit)

From Winston Wachter,

we learn

“Eby was born in a small coastal town in Oregon

where she was influenced early on by

the sea, forests and swamps.

She now shares her time between

Seattle and Maine.

Classical music, which she has practiced

since a young age, is a dominant influence

in her life and painting, contributing

to the rhythmic quality of her compositions.

Through a restraint in palette and nuance

of surface, Eby’s works exhibit a

luminous radiance.

In these paintings a meditation is

offered up to those who are willing.”

Betsy’s latest exhibit is



Peace to you right where you are.

    I've seen her with her husband on a magazine before. I'm trying to remember which one. I felt in love with their philosophy of life. She seems to be a fascinating person.

    Did you have fun with your friend yesterday?

    Enjoy your weekend, my friend!
