 St. Joseph's Hospital Commission Finished!

  • Nine Dot Arts, of Denver, Colorado, organized the artwork commissions for the large scale remodel of Denver's St. Joseph's Hospital. I was lucky enough to be awarded two large panels, 7' X 3' each, watercolors on aqua board, to be hung in the Surgury Waiting Room in the newly revamped hospital. I was also honored to be told that the piece would be dedicated to my mother, Thelma Lane Olmstead, as she died during the time of the production of this piece. The paintings are scheduled to be hung in the hospital fall of 2014.

New Blog! New Store in the works!

This is my first day to get a "blog" started. For years I have had people request that I keep my website more up to date. This seems like a great way to get that rolling. This fall and winter I am getting the blog going and getting an on-line store in the works. Feels good to be moving forward. I hope to keep everyone interested by showing my new work as it is produced and keep my events up to date for those of you that have requested that. I appreciate the interest and am excited to get this rolling! Since I am not very "techy" I know there will be a big learning curve with all of this - but it is exciting to be launching something new! Here we go... Tammie
