Happy Birthday, Rie!
Muñoz celebrated her 89th birthday on August
17th with family, most notably her grandson Matthew
age 4, whose birthday was four days earlier. Rie and
the rest of us just returned from two weeks in Tenakee
where we had great fun cracking crab, roasting marshmallows
on the beach and picking berries.
PUTS DOWN HER BRUSHES
their party, Rie and Matthew drew a few sketches together,
but other than that, Rie is not painting any more. Muñoz
says, "my eyesight is 'bum', but I figured I've
painted between 1,500 and 2,000 paintings in my life
and I'm perfectly ok to put down my brushes."
MUÑOZ OFF TO COLLEGE
granddaughter, Mercedes, graduated from High School
this year. She was on the honor roll in her 2010 class
and is at Montana State University, in Bozeman. We are
all proud of her and wish her the best in this next
exciting phase of her life!.
CLOSES TO GO FISHING
you have to stop and smell the roses, or in this case, the
The bite is on, so Tom and I closed the gallery to go fishing
with my son Matthew in Tenakee for a few days. Not to worry,
we're already back and yes, we ripped some fish lips!
Gallery is unveiling a new web site next month which will
show all the images that Rie has published (even those titles
we do not have for sale). The secured website will enable
customers to order online and it will give you a great visual
tool at your finger tips.
IN VERMONT ANTIQUE SHOP
received this photo of an original 1960 Rie Muñoz watercolor
of Skagway, Alaska. It was purchased by a resident of South
Carolina while traveling in Vermont last month. She stopped
by this antique store and spotted a charming but very dusty
picture way back behind two columns of 'stuff.' The owner wanted
$50 but settled on $35! Measuring 12 ¾" x 9 ½"
it is currently appraised at between $3,500 and $4,000.
What a find!
you for your interest in the artwork of Rie Muñoz!
