Two of 7 pieces up at Lincoln Theater in Mt.Vernon WA for the month of July 2022
This painting will be put to use as a blueprint for a real life tree house whose construction will begin this week! My daughter climbed the tree and pointed out where the main structures should go- one main floor where the branches begin to grow outwards and a higher up crows nest lookout. A slide and a hanging ladder will bring the finishing touches. (We are looking for an upcycled play slide at least 9 ft long.) My grandmother planted the tree of choice in our back yard about 70 years ago. It is a flowering cherry with pale pink blossoms in March and then is covered in deep burgundy foliage the rest of the summer and fall. The branches a very strong and will make an excellent base for a tree house. More to come…

Hello We Are Fish, But Actually We Are Fish From The Dead, oil and acrylic on roofing paper, 36 by 51 in. Emilia Kallock 2021
It was a still evening as the sun set over the bay on the landscape in front of my art studio, and I specifically painted this oil painting to celebrate the rare remaining coastal woods in the area that animals call home. Stanwood is the closest town to the south. We are at a crucial time where City and County Council’s decisions directly affect what happens to this land by either creating tax incentives for landowners to preserve wild spaces, create nature preserves, support the creation of self-subsistence rural home lots, or they can provide incentives for large corporate track home developers and businesses to alter the landscape forever. Other areas in the state that have preserved their way of life and have created large green spaces for habitat and recreation are the ones with the highest appeal and have the greatest tourist draw ($$). Their communities and businesses benefit immensely from visitor’s revenue. And they are not the only ones who benefit: so will the ecosystem and the wildlife that call this place home.
