Night Chetzemoka Ferry SOLD

A view of the Chetzemoka Ferry on a run from Tahlequah to Point Defiance.  Dusk is turning to night and the lights of Tacoma are twinkling in the background.  I like the colors of the different lights and reflections.  On my ETSY store

First Roses

The first of the spring roses.  These are the rootstock,  rosa canensis, of a grafted species rose.  The grafted rose and the rootstock both put out canes and the rootstock is winning. I like the pink blush in the bud and the simple single layer of petals.    On my ETSY store.

Southworth Ferry Against A Dark Green Hill

I had a view of the Southworth Ferry from the hilltop on Pallisades Avenue at Vashon Heights. From that height the ferryboat looked like a toy as it pulled in and out of the dock.  The late afternoon sun threw a shadow across the hills behind the ferry landing and from the distance the water looked smooth and tranquil.  On my ETSY store

Ferry with Glare

12 x 12 original oil painting of the Vashon Fauntleroy Southworth Ferry as it heads across Puget Sound into the glare of the sun.  Ferries are a favorite subject of mine and I especially like them with the sparkling water.   I like how the bright sun throws everything into dark or light, obscures details  and simplifies broad areas.  Painted from photographs I took on location.  On my Etsy store

Night Moon Lighthouse SOLD

A 12x15 painting of the Vashon Pt. Robinson Lighthouse in the moonlight.  The lighthouse park is actually closed after sunset, so don't tell anyone I was there after dark!   On my ETSY store
