“My paintings are gifts from the luminous sky. This new body of work expresses my connection to the expansiveness and mysteries of the universe.
While traveling in England I used the circle motif as a tool to see the landscape and compose a painting. It was as if I were looking through a telescope or camera lens to align my focus.One night during that journey I watched the brilliant full moon rise over Glastonbury Tor. Much later that evening I saw intense lightning strikes across the vast velvety blue.
I’m grateful for the exhilarating and magnificent night sky putting on its best light show and the mysterious landscape of crop circles. Locally I have seen Perseid meteor showers, the super moon rising as the sun set on the horizon of the Pacific Ocean, and many unforgettable and brilliant starry nights. My circle paintings are inspired by these vivid experiences.
I invite you to connect with the light and healing energy. Enjoy the journey through the lens and beyond.”

Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic was founded by Christopher Luna in 2004. From November 2004 to December 2006, the readings took place at Ice Cream Renaissance. From January 2007 to January 2015 the readings took place at Cover to Cover Books. Christopher Luna and Toni Partington, co-hosts of the open mic and edited and published two anthologies of poetry from the series for their imprint Printed Matter Vancouver. When Cover to Cover recently announced that it would be closing its doors, Angst Gallery/Niche Wine and Art Bar owner Leah Jackson offered the gallery as a new home for the series. The Vancouver, WA poetry community thanks Cover to Cover proprietor Mel Sanders for her eight years of service to local writers.

Leadbetter Point, Willapa National Wildlife Refuge
beyond the edge of words a fading line
surrendered into silence syntax moved
directing where to stalk or pantomime
in semaphores the byways unimproved
beyond the edge of worlds a falling dream
that seeks to beach the tidal rising fast
past current rush through estuary sea
runs eeling too a salted push of grass
for refuge snowy plovers poised to lift
from mudflat nests gone boggy skyward hail
upended wintering down a calling cliff
beyond the edge of worth what loss unveils
inscription on the fly leaf constant no
ellipses still how much I do not know
Angst Gallery will be hosting a group show titled “Mon Poussin” – a term of endearment in French, the literal translation being baby chick.
