Green -- NFS

8/20/10 "Green", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
This was the third painting at the Fisherman Bay Preserve on Lopez Island during one morning, and by this time I was in a more experimental frame of mind.  A friend now has this painting.  She said it reminded her of the work of Emily Carr, which in retrospect connected me to the yet to be experienced workshop with David Molett in Alaska the following week.  Strange how those things sometimes happen.


  1. Your friend is right! I love the calligraphy of your of your brushmarks...very nice.

  2. There's a fascinating book about Emily Carr called The Forest Lover by Susan Vreeland. I love her work. Her paintings are filled with dramatic windswept trees-very much like your painting.
