Art- Jean Schwalbe
"Jean's impressionistic paintings become almost a surprise to the viewer as the colors are not what one would expect to find in a landscape. Jean captures energy by pushing the color palette to rich, warm and vivid hues. Originally a watercolorist who studied under George Hamilton, Jean has been painting acrylics for the past ten years. They give her more "freedom" and using "lots of paint is more fun". And it is certainly more fun for the viewer! Whether painting rushing streams and rivers, familar Oregon mountains, meadows, clouds or all of the above together, she captures a special intensity and vitality found in nature."
"Celtinalia brings together two performers with many years of diverse musical experience. Jennifer Pratt-Walter, of the Celtic Muse duo, provides Celtic harp, recorder, tin whistle, percussion and vocals. Carl Thor, of Talisman, adds hammered dulcimer, keyboard, mandolin and vocals. Jennifer and Carl have known each other for years, but only recently began performing together outside of their church community. Together, they create music to lighten the spirit and feed the soul. Audiences are loving the transcendent quality of their music — and clamoring for a recording!" Celtinalia
