Night Ferry Southworth - View from Colvos Passage - Vashon Fauntleroy Ferry

The Southworth ferry dock is seen from the west side of Vashon.  This is a view looking north along Colvos Passage.  In the summer the sun sets far to the north; the sky glows above Bainbridge Island.  The lights of the ferry and the ferry dock are bright in the twilight.  Painted from photographs I took on location.  This painting will be showing at Dockton Pottery this weekend,  stop #19 on the Vashon Island Art Studio Tour.  The tour is the last two weekends in June, from 10 to 5 on the 18th, 19th, 25th and 26th.

Surf Fishing - Gray Day at Pacific Beach - Painting of Fishing for Surf Perch in Washington SOLD

Painted on the Washington coast in May after a morning of clam digging.  The digging was over for the day, but chest- wader attired fishermen were standing in the surf casting for surf perch.  It was a gray day so the colors were very harmonious.  I used a cool gray for the sky and water, but  the waves picked up the  beach sand as they broke and turned a warm brown.  On my ETSY store.

Copalis River

A view of the Copalis River on its path to the sea on the Washington coast.  It was the last opening of spring clam tides and we parked next to a guy who was selling clam guns.  His season was over so he was in a chatty mood.  We both agreed this was a million dollar view.
