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. 
(More historical info here if you are interested)

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.

Dicky, thank you. That's a nice image. Colored pencil? I'm guessing.

Thank you. It is watercolor pencil and watercolor. I love doing art, it is a wonderful way to lose yourself for a while!

"I am hoping this continues and is not merely an anomaly."

There is no anomaly in your creative ability...

Your shows should do well consistently....

I wish I could play a beautifully as you can paint...

Keep at it...

Ron, thanks for the encouraging words. It's still difficult to reconcile this later-age success, however small, with the lifetime that came before. I have every intention of continuing as long as I can.

Lovely. That first one reminds me of the lyrics to one of my songs "Don Coyote":

"He saddles his invisible stallion and races to far-off lands
Chasing an old Spanish galleon, that sails across the sands"
