Donna Romero at Waterworks VIAST Tour Stop # 9

Donna Romero is primarily an oil painter, who also does collage and assemblage, with occasional pastels for fun. She has exhibited on Vashon since 1999, with shows also in Seattle, Friday Harbor and Bainbridge. Donna teaches classes in painting, drawing and printmaking to adults and children through the Blue Heron and privately. Please see more of her work at her web site,

I am entranced by the play of light and shadow on ordinary objects and familiar places. I paint in oils for their rich color and luminosity. I do collages to satisfy my need to play with shape, color and mood. I also love to play with odd found objects to create assemblages. I seem drawn to the everyday things and environments of home and hearth. I always work from my own photographs. "

Morgan Brig Studio, VIAST Holiday Tour Stop #11

Morgan Brig Studio #11

Copper, torch-fired enamel, fired ceramic and found objects are what I use to create these figurative pieces below. I have a love of the house form too and am creating a multitude of small copper houses for this December Tour. At the very bottom is a studio shot of ceramics in process.
