MUÑOZ RETURNS FROM MORROW BAY

Morrow BayRie had a super time in Morro Bay, California for the last couple of months, but is equally excited to return home. She’s most interested in what ‘the latest’ is with her little grandson Matthew. I usually have some fun anecdote to share in the way of a new move or word he has mastered.

Rie did a few paintings while on the coast. Sea lions, birds, bright colors and a quiet fishing industry all make for great subject matter.

MUÑOZ AT THE IDITAROD DOG SLED RACE

Dog Sketch

A couple of days after returning from California, Rie jumped on the plane to Nome to check out the last part of the 2008 Iditarod Race. No, she didn’t run in the Iditarod but did a number of great sketches for future paintings.

Unlike most, Rie didn’t care to see who won. She just wanted to sketch and get the flavor of the race so she showed up a week after the winner came in, just in time to watch the ‘red lantern’ prize (the last team in) given to a local Juneau musher, Debbie Bicknell. Later that night Rie and Debbie dined together, along with some other folks, and Rie got to hear all about the long journey.


MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE

We got an e-mail the other day from a gentleman in British Columbia saying he had found a four year old message in a bottle from Rie! Rie and a couple of friends were on the way to Unalaska and having finished a bottle of gin they cheerfully wrote a message in a bottle and threw it in the rough waters of the Gulf of Alaska. This chap was beachcombing for Japanese glass balls in Lepas Bay near the old Haida village of Kiusta on the West coast of the Queen Charlotte Islands. The message, written on one of Rie’s art cards was mainly complaining that they had lots of olives left but no gin.

As a side note, with my mom’s encouragement, I threw a bottle with a note inside when I was seven years old. I got a nice note from a lady a few months later saying she had found it. My bottle had traveled from Juneau’s waterfront, across the channel to Douglas, three miles away.


Thank you for your interest in the artwork of Rie Muñoz!

Sincerely,
