Change in the Adventure
Hi, I’m Jeanette Mahoney, a watercolor and digital artist. We lived in Longview WA for 40 plus years. I started painting in the 1980s and also taught painting for a while in my small business, Heart Strokes. In the 1990s I was back to work and also took college classes. After retirement and when the kids were all on their own we became full time RVers. We sold our home in Longview, WA and journeyed from Alaska to much of the United States. I focused my art to reflect these new experiences.
In our travels I loved seeing God’s glory reflected in landscapes and wildlife. Meeting other campers, artists and art lovers along this journey so much fun. I loved the RV life with my super supportive hubby!
In 2023 we decided the time had come to stop traveling the country. We sold the truck and camper and rented a house by the beach on beautiful Camano Island, Washington. I have a studio overlooking the bay as I paint from reference photos of our travels. And I’m able to explore this beautiful Pacific Northwest and Puget Sound. I have a special place in my heart for the animals of the Pacific Northwest. Eagles, otters, whales, and bears are some of my favorite subjects.
Things sure changed fast. Once we decided to end our RVing Adventure, we sold the trailer and truck. We rented a wonderful Beach House on Camano Island Washington. I'm getting involved with a Gallery here and making new friends.
