Print Rack and Shrink Wrap Machine For Sale


It’s been a pleasure meeting so many fine artists here in the Rogue Valley. The community here is wonderful.

But, as happens from time to time, I’m moving out of the area. And, that means time to sell stuff. Check out the images, which outline what I have: a shrink wrap machine and a print rack. If you’re interested or know someone who might be, please send Margaret (Peggy) Stermer-Cox an email. Margaret (Peggy) Stermer-Cox [email protected]

SALE time!

About once a year I decide I need to get seriously organized and I go through the studio finding pieces that I’d like to find a nice new home.  These are pieces I love but don’t have plans to show and so I’d much rather get them to folks at a great deal instead of […]

Praying Angel Painting

A link to your site, with your site’s name as anchor text.

I created a praying angel painting for the GoodBean’s Angels show, and now that I have a new blog, I wanted tomake it the subject of my first post! I thought I would take an approach that’s a little different from the art I normally create. This angel is 11″ x 14″, a watercolor and ink collage. She has already attracted many lovely compliments, and will be on display with the angels of other southern Oregon artists at GoodBean Coffee in Jacksonville, Oregon until the afternoon of December 31, 2015.

The post Praying Angel Painting appeared first on Linda Abblett Watercolors.

Making an Effort

I’m making a real effort to get most of my available work up onto my Etsy site – I’ve been so resistant to the dull work of it all, but for whatever reason, I’m on a roll now.  You know, just in case you have $60 – $3000 burning a hole in your pocket.  (lol, […]

Thanks Guys!

Three awesome businesses in Ashland, OR have been featuring my work – Smithfields of course has been an awesome venue and inspiration – check out the new kids menu (and you may think it should be kids’ or even kid’s, this is an ongoing controversy), anyway, it’s a foray into illustration for me.  Loved doing […]

Preview Piece Two

Whaleshead Beach, plein air painting by artist Sarah F Burns of Ashland, Oregon

I promised a preview of my show that opens Friday and here is part two.   We had some brutal smoke from wildfires this year (we get it every summer but this year was the worst since 1987 apparently) and many of us cut out and head for the coast when it gets bad. The […]
