Painted from a view of a quiet bay on Bainbridge Island. This is a painting that is less about subject and more about mood. The water is glass smooth and the deep shadow and sunlight suggests a tranquil warm summer day. This one will be in a show in Artique Ltd. gallery in Anchorage Alaska opening September 2.
This is a view familiar to commuters who are waiting at the Fauntleroy ferry dock late on a sunny afternoon. Two ferries are 3 miles away at the north end of Vashon; the sun has gone behind the hills leaving the ferries in shadow and turning the hillside red.
A familiar site in the interior in Alaska. An area burned by fire, but showing new growth with pink blossoms of fireweed. I like the pink patches and the dark area of spruce trunks in the distance. This one will be in a show in Anchorage at the ArtiqueLtd Gallery in September
A painting of a hillside covered with fireweed in bloom. Fireweed thrives in disturbed soil and burned areas and is one of the first plants to reestablish after a forest fire. I like the mix of saturated and less saturated colors. This one will be in a show at Artique Ltd Gallery in Anchorage in September.
Painted from a photo I took on a trip to the Washington coast several years ago. It was a cool rainy day, and the headlands and sea stacks were obscured by rain and mist. A very low tide exposed lots of large rocks along the seashore. A friend and I explored the tidepools and saw lots of rocks that looked like swiss cheese. Some sort of mollusc, or possibly a sea urchin, bored these holes into the solid rock for protection.
