Bellingham artist Lorna Libert presents “Boats and Birds” through June 10 at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center, 2901 Squalicum Parkway. Libert paints portraits of rowboats, dinghies and lobster boats, weather-beaten characters who have stood the text of time. After many years of painting these boats, she found inspiration in the sea birds that adorn them, and has spent much time on commercial fishing boats, where she was able to study and appreciate the “quirky characteristics” of those birds.
