Mt. Hood

\
"Mt. Hood", 6 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board

This was painted last year in the Columbia Gorge. I'm wondering if Mt. Hood can be seen at all this week. Yesterday morning we could look directly at the very red sun, so thick was the smoke here above Puget Sound.

Death Valley Last Light


"Death Valley Last Light", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
This painting was done after a trip to Death Valley a couple of years ago and I found it recently buried under a stack of paintings. Living in the Pacific Northwest where everything is green and more green, I love to go to the desert places.

Blue Hills Utah


"Blue Hills Utah", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board

I experimented in this painting with the palette knife. Sometime it is good to deliberately change a habit.

Utah Snow


"Utah Snow", 8 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board

I've actually been painting a lot in the last three months, but have posted few paintings, maybe because they all feel like an experiment. Sometimes I simply can't remember how I used to do it and the most benevolent interpretation of that is that the universe is trying to tell me something.

Sky over Utah


"Sky over Utah", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board

Sometimes when doing a painting, the simpler, the better. And quit while the bandito is still holding out her arm, showing how far it is to the horizon, before that cranky sheriff comes around looking for evidence of wrongdoing. If only I could do that every time. But it means I have to start without the sheriff standing behind me in the first place.

Colors of the Reef


"Colors of the Reef", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board

Have I said before that I keep going back to Capitol Reef? And that the backside of the Reef is a different world? I looked at this painting when I got back from Utah and thought, "Did I paint that? Do I dare show this?" And I think now, yes, it was visceral and visual--one with the brush.
