MIKE SMITH

Mike Smith is known world wide with collectors in Japan, England, and Germany. He paints brightly colored watercolors depicting the world around his neighborhood including the farm settings and animals among his flower gardens and his studio under the flowering trees. His dogs Maggie, Maddie, and Toby as well as Bill the cat and horses are famously part of his paintings that often overlook the Columbia River with sail boats in the distance. Mike's posters and serigraphs have been distributed nationally and internationally for decades, and now Pendleton Woolen Mills has produced a series of Mike's images in100% wool woven tapesteries.

KENDAHL JAN JUBB

Kendahl Jan Jubb's watercolor paintings of exotic birds, fish, tropical animals, and flower arrangements are at once recognized by her unique style of incorporating in her work intricate and colorful designs and patterns. She loves all forms of nature and often hides a tiny bird, frog, insect or small creature in the foliage of her paintings.

Bill Baily is a widely collected watercolor artist who specializes in intricate and superb paintings of fruit and vegetables. He has exhibited in many watercolor society shows including the Artists of Oregon Exhibit at the Portland Art Museum.
