Lynwood Center - NFS

"Lynwood Center", 9 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board

I am happy to say that this little painting won First Place in the Winslow Art Center Plein Air Competition this last weekend on Bainbridge Island! My painting buddy, Jeanne Edwards, and I were checking out the shoreline on the south end of the Island and decided we wanted color--so back to this delightfully small business center with its outdoor cafes and old time theater marquee. I am still exploring the wisdom of the palette knife--the impetuous shapes of color with a lot of paint! My sincere thank you to Lois Griffel, the juror of the show, for supporting my journey with the award! Jeanne also did a wonderful painting of the same scene, which immediately sold off the wall at the show! Thank you to Martha Jordan, Director of the Winslow Art Center for this intense experience--we had to submit our daily paintings, framed, by 4 pm on the day of painting! No time to think twice or angst about it. Thank you to Syliva Carlton, Bainbridge Island resident and founder of Plein Air Washington.

Lopez Dock

"Lopez Dock", 10 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board

I'll have to find this painting and see if it is as dark and scrappy as it seems, because it suits me today. This is another painting from the summer of 2018.
