Last week after delivering a painting to a friend, I stopped by to see Anne Siems’s exhibit at the Thurston Gallery in Pioneer Square. Luckily, the owner was there a little early so I was able view the exhibit undisturbed and at great length, which her paintings require. They are even more amazing in person. Today I discovered that she has self-published a book of her favorite paintings through Blurb. I can’t afford one of her paintings, but I can order this and I have.
