New work: Merry & bright


Eureka, California
Dec. 6, 2013

This time of year, Arcata artist Annette Makino sets herself a special challenge: to paint holiday pieces that are fresh and original, avoiding cliched themes. This image of three ripe persimmons on the branch, titled “merry & bright,” is one of several nontraditional holiday pieces.

Makino will be offering her new work at the Humboldt Artisans Crafts and Music Festival this weekend, today through Sunday, at the Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in Eureka. Makino will also have a booth at the Holiday Craft Market at the Arcata Community Center on Dec. 14 and 15. To see more, visit
