Painting party to be held at NCC

The Naselle Community Center and FAFF will present a painting party with teacher and artist Abbie (Smith) Mumley. The painting party will be held Saturday, April 15 at 2 p.m. at the Naselle Community Center, 14 Parpala Road. Each participant will be instructed in painting a beautiful Lily pad painting and will leave with their portrait. All supplies will be provided. Refreshments will also be provided. The cost is $30 and interested persons may pre-register with Barb Swanson at or call 360-484-3602.

Abbie (Smith) Mumley is the daughter of Scott and Colleen Smith and grew up in Naselle and graduated from Naselle High School.

She lives in Vancouver, WA. now and is a wife and mother of five.

She originally developed her artistic ability while studying interior design at Seattle Pacific University. Recently, she joined an art community group called the ‘Insiders Studio,’ where taking weekly lessons expanded her knowledge and skill and increased her confidence. This gave her a genuine ambition to invest in and expand her artistic ability.

Abbie has created card sets, sold paintings in person and online, and does commission works upon request. She also leads a paint party event each month at a local winery. This past summer she held her first-ever art show and sold over 30 pieces of her original work. One of her favorite things to do as an artist is to encourage others to put down their fear, pick up a paint brush and have some fun painting.

Register soon: or 360-484-3602.
