Alleda Real Estate
25 Minnesota Avenue #1
Alleda Real Estate presents Jacqueline Newbold. Jacqueline Newbold’s life journey gives her a never-ending source of inspiration to represent gems of the world in her color-filled paintings. Her watercolor journal has become her constant companion everywhere she travels. Primarily a watercolor artist, she loves to explore creative ways to incorporate mixed media into her art. Using a warm and playful color palette, Jacqueline enjoys capturing a moment in time by painting old weathered words, dappled sunlight on a field of lavender, or the brilliance of a tropical beach. She introduces color in the shadows and sun-drenched areas, which creates a luminous glow in her paintings. When at home in her studio, the small journal sketches and paintings often provide the bases for her larger creations.

Bella Moda is pleased to present the work of Vicki Shuck during Art Walk, July 1rd. Vicki’s oil paintings are of everyday people caught in a particular moment of time. “They are the people we see in restaurants, ordering a drink during 900 Wall’s happy hour, lounging on a sunny day in Drake park and reading the newspaper at the Riverside Market. “ Ms. Shuck creates her paintings from sketches done on location and photographs to capture these moments of life. Vicki believes that each moment is unique and is comprised of its own gestures, colors and sounds. “As I spend time with these little slices of life, I am able to live into the richness of that moment. “ Please join us for an artist reception from 5-9 pm at Bella Moda, 1001 NW Wall St., in Downtown Bend. Contact Karen at 541-550-7001 for more information.
