Wallowas


"Wallowas", 9 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board, 2011

This is an older painting from 2011. I have been taken with the Wallowa Mountains in Northeastern Oregon since we stayed there years ago in a little town called Halfway. We drove into town as the sun was setting. It was so beautiful I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!
Halfway, Oregon

If you are fascinated by geology, like me, go to this website:
Wallowa Mountains

And for a further dose of geology--read the NPR article on the Grand Canyon. I listened to it yesterday on the radio while painting. According to the author, the Grand Canyon on "...the Colorado Plateau —130,000 square miles — there's really no place on Earth that even approximates what we have right here in the southwestern part of the United States.”

This brought back more memories--in my 20's I backpacked down to the bottom of the Canyon from the South Rim and then west along the Tonto Platform to Hermit Creek. And I've been three times on raft painting trips from Lee's Ferry through the Inner Gorge.

Into the Canyon


"Into the Canyon", 10 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board

This painting is from the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in Southern Utah. The area, approximately one million acres of public lands, is called the Grand Staircase because the land rises in geologic steps from the low-lying desert to coniferous forest. The following link describes Escalante and its many wonders.

Adams Park


"Adams Park", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board

This is yet another painting from the Winslow Art Center Paintout on Bainbridge Island last September. Adams Park is a small stretch of land on Eagle Harbor between the slough of the harbor and a busy road. More than an actual memory, this painting tells me how beautiful it was there at low tide. I found a touching story about Adams Park that I'd like to share:

Man died taking care of the park he loved.

Mountain and Sky

"Mountain and Sky", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board

This is another painting I found during my studio re-organization. The palette knife has appropriated me. I've tried to go back to brush work, but currently have failed! At the very least, my thoughts are telling me that the palette knife is so much easier to clean up.

Capitol Reef Color

"Capitol Reef Color", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
This is were we would be right not if not for the current stay-at-home restrictions. We had also made a reservation in Escalante and the hotel wrote us saying that nothing was open in the town and the grocery store was only selling to local residents. I especially love to paint along the Fremont River that runs through Capitol Reef and on the back side of the reef off of Notom Road. In Escalante and Bears Ears you can drive on back roads and never see another car.
