Two new River pieces

August 2, 2018

“Elwah” and “Nisqually at Longmire” have joined my river series. I have two more in the works. “Nisqually at Longmire” is currently at Blend Wine Shop and then will travel to the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle in the Fall. I am quite happy with the way this series is developing. Some images are abstract close ups and others are more landscape. These two fall into the abstracted category.

Two new pieces

“Dungeness” tapestry                         “Maui Tidepools” oil on canvas

Just finished “Dungeness”, another in my Washington rivers series. “Tidepool” was completed late last summer. Both pieces are pushing a more abstract direction with a strong focus on composition. I like the way your eye is forced to move around the work and hope it translates into a more intimate relationship with place.

“Cottonwood Canal” headed to The Arts Center in Corvallis OR for “Pacific Time Zone” Aug.18-Sept.20

New painting inspired by the day we took Don and Char’s ashes out to be spread on Commencement Bay. Wake in all meanings of the word.
