Wenatchee Clouds and Sunlight

"Wenatchee Clouds and Sunlight", 9 x 12 In, Oil, 2021

Thank you to Aimee Erickson for awarding this painting First Place for Plein Air in the Plein Air Washington Artists show currently on view at the American Art Company Gallery in Tacoma, Washington. Congratulations to all the other award winners and all the exhibiters.

I am happy to contribute my award to two local Western Washington environmental organizations: Friends of Burley Lagoon near Gig Harbor and Protect the Peninsula's Future near Port Angeles Both these groups are fighting the installation of industrial aquaculture in their respective waters. You can go to their websites to learn more about the devastation these industrial operations cause in Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. As Plein Air painters--we touch the land and the waters around us with our hearts and our souls.

Please contact me if you have questions.
