Artist celebrates autumn at North Country Fair


Eureka, California
Sept. 14, 2017

While attending a haiku conference in Washington state last fall, Arcata-based artist Annette Makino opened her window to catch the fresh scent of rain as it fell on the maple trees outside. That simple but evocative moment led to her to paint the image and write the haiku for this painting.

“Dusk settling” is painted on paper with sumi ink and Japanese watercolors. It is one of several paintings that will be on view in the Makino Studios booth at the North Country Fair this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In addition to original paintings, Makino will offer her new greeting cards, signed art prints and 2018 calendars of art and haiku.

The Makino Studios booth can be found on G Street near Moore’s Sleepworld. For more information about Makino’s work, see or call 707-362-6644.
