Gooseberry Point

'Gooseberry Point.' 2016. Oil on Linen Panel. 9" x 24"
Lately I've been painting small studies on scraps of panel, left behind from larger paintings. This one was the right scale for the kind of sound view I love: the long low islands and points extending into the Salish Sea.

Bellingham Bay from Boulevard Park

'Bellingham Bay'. 2016. Oil on Linen Panel. 30" x 40"
This is my running route - along Bellingham Bay through Boulevard Park and along the walkway. It's one of those great, big open views that it's hard to get in Bellingham and a great place to see storms move in.

Sound, while riding the train

'Sound, while riding the train'. 2016. Oil on Linen Panel. 30" x 40"
If you time it right, you can be on the left side of the train heading north out of Seattle at sunset. It's spectacular. All the way to Vancouver, it's a great view and probably the best way to see the coast.

After the flood, after Ellie

After the flood, after Ellie. Oil on Linen Panel. 16" x 20.
Great news: I've got a show scheduled for next March at Smith & Vallee in Edison. My focus will be on the Salish Sea - it surrounds me. This painting is of a flooded field near Lummi Nation.

Quinault Sun

Quinault Sun. Oil on Linen Panel. 2016, 20" x 30"
Over the past several years I've worked with two Treaty Tribes in the Pacific Northwest and that work places me in some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. This winter I've begun to paint what I've experienced.

Starting with this one of sun breaks over Quinault beach.

Desert Skies, Petrified Forest National Park Art Residency

Desert Skies. Oil on Linen Panel. 2016. 20" x 30"
From my Art Residency at Petrified Forest National Park. I love the iconic horizon with mesas in the distance and of course, the afternoon clouds.
