Spencer Spit

8/23/10 "Spencer Spit", 8" x 10", Oil
This is another fast painting on Lopez Island, but fast because the sun was setting behind the hill.  There are so many beautiful painting spots on Lopez Island, but the really enchanting thing about Lopez is that the residents on this small island wave to everybody as they pass in their cars--without fail--a one finger, two finger or full hand wave. And I started waving to everybody. It kept me on my toes--I couldn't get lost in day dreams.  It made me so aware of the island and who was there.
