Daniel Ridgway Knight Artwork in Gamble House

During my recent behind the scenes tour of the Gamble House with Jim Ipekjian I noticed an oil painting of a Dutch girl.  Since we were not allowed to take pictures I wrote down the name of the painter and looked up information about him later online.

His name was Daniel Ridgway Knight (1839-1924) and if you search his name for images you can see a whole collection of his work, any of which would be gorgeous in a bungalow home.  It looks like prints are available and there are some reproduction services out there but I am not sure what to think of that idea--maybe someone can enlighten me.

Vintage and Antique Lighting Field Trip

I went on a field trip recently----to the tulip fields---but also to a fabulous vintage lighting store in nearby LaConner, Washington.  And I can't wait to go again.
