Oregon Beach

A view from a trip down highway 101 following the Oregon Coast;  high bluffs, sandy beaches, and rocky headlands make for beautiful scenery.  This was probably near Ecola State Park just north of Canon Beach.

Cosmos and Zinnia

Although it's getting cooler, the flowers in the garden are still going strong and the sweet autumn clematis has just started to bloom.  So I picked a red zinnia, some deep pink cosmos and some white clematis for this fall bouquet.  I worked hard to keep it loose - the flowers are suggested, but I did paint the zinnia with a little more detail.

Evening Vashon Ferry

A late afternoon view of the Vashon-Fauntleroy-Southworth ferry at the north end of Vashon.  Light  touches the ferry at the end of the dock, but leaves the hill in shadow.
