Winter Walk

Snow Creek Studios

Hi to all
Greg and I bought a building in town and we completely remodeled it. On December 14th we will be opening Snow Creek Studios, A Chris Messer Gallery at 416 N Mt Shasta Blvd., from 3:30 to 8:30.  We are really excited about this new adventure.  Hope you will be able to stop by if you are in Mt. Shasta.

It is a stormy day in Mt. Shasta.  I have run my errands in town and wanted to

say hi to my bloggers.  I hope you have all had a lovely holiday.

I have still been working on women who have ended up with a halo type crown

on them and here is one of my current ones: I have

been calling them “modern madonna’s”

Namaste’  Chris

Hi to all,

I am excited about today’s post.  I hung my show at the Art and Soul Gallery in Ashland on Monday.  I am pleased with the way it came out.  That evening when I was getting ready to do my daily sketch, I was at a blank, tired and bleary eyed from traveling up to Ashland and all the other things it requires to put up a show.  So I went back to my favorite faces, firmly believing it would not go very far, but wow once I started, I was set free.  I am really pleased with the results.  If you are in Ashland, Oregon, this Friday night come by. I would love to meet you at the show.

Hi Friends.  Today is October 24th.  And it is snowing at my house!  Will winter actually start this early, or just a little reminder that winter is just around the corner.  Time to get all the knitting projects out!  I am the featured artist at the Art and Soul Gallery in Ashland for the first Friday walk in November.  I have preparing for this show, painting, framing ,etc., so in the evening when I usually do my daily drawings, I have been really tired and uninspired.  So I have just been doodling and it seems once I get into the drawing I can really have fun with it. So here is today’s image:

For now my new posts will be on Wednesday, but I have quickly realized I may have to do this on Tuesday evening, as I find that my days can go by really fast.

But I would like to share a couple of new images with you

I do a lot of faces:

I also paint lots of birds but here is one of my drawings:

See you next week and have a great week ’til then.






Today I start my blog.  Last year on my birthday, I decided to do a daily drawing which was very successful. I plan on another year of drawing and painting on a daily basis.  I would like to share these images with you
