Nisqually Reach


"Nisqually Reach", 12 x 10, Oil on Museum Board

This was painted at the annual Plein Air Washington paint-out at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge in March. The Refuge is a testament to the persevering power of determined environmentalists in Washington State, and I give special thanks to the late Helen Engle, who was instrumental in establishing the Nisqually Refuge along with many other preserves. Thank you, Helen!

Solduc Rapids

"Solduc Rapids", 12 x 10, Oil on Museum Board

I painted the Solduc last summer during the Paint the Peninsula event. I love the Olympics. I spent years as a girl backpacking up the rivers--the Hamma Hamma, the Dosewallips, the Elwa, the Quinault. The names alone bring me to a magic place.

Dock at Ediz Hook

"Dock at Ediz Hook", 12 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board

I am happy to say that "Dock at Ediz Hook" was accepted in the 2019 American Impressionist Small Work Exhibition in June, 2019.

Painted on a pier on Ediz Hook in Port Angeles, this painting won "Best Architecture" award from Judge Eric Jacobsen in the 2018 Paint the Peninsula competition on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. I painted happily with my friend, Jeanne Edwards, during the competition.
