I thought I would share this with whomever is left here of my old Oursalon pals.
Recent health concerns and changes in lifestyle have allowed me to spend lots more time in the art studio, painting. I've done 47 works so far this year. I've been showing pretty regularly, and selling a bit, too. I am hoping this continues and is not merely an anomaly. Doesn't matter, though- I will keep painting regardless.
Both are oils on canvas.
This first one is called The Chetzemoka, Dreaming (24" x 36")
It is a portrait of an old rowboat, now landlocked at Fort Worden in Port Townsend, WA.
The boat is named for an indigenous leader of the S'Klallam Tribe during the 1850s.

This next painting is smaller, 18" x 24" Sunset on Beach Drive
It's a local view. The terrible air quality of this past summer and fall led to some very beautiful atmospheric effects.
