Boulevard Trees

I didn’t set out to paint these trees which are outside my window but there was something appealing about their colours set against the blues and greys of the street.

A year ago I caught a glimpse of my daughter through a window, just before her wedding ceremony.

This painting has been hanging on my studio wall for many months unfinished, but I’ve come to like it as it is..

Happy Anniversary Megan and Dan!

Fog Bank

Once again I was trying to capture the light in the evening just before the sunset; often there is a fog bank off the Olympic Mountains.

I’m working on a few small paintings that I haven’t finished yet, in the meantime I thought I’d post this watercolour that I painted a couple of summers ago.

I had just moved into this place and I wasn’t familiar with these flowers, my neighbour (the gardener) says they survive by neglect and she has never been able to grow them. Well, they grow really well in my garden and the best part is, they glow at night when all the other gardens are dark.

The mask is African which I bought that summer while volunteering at Ten Thousand Villages. I’m not sure why I put them together but I think in a way at the time they represented hope.

Last Light

I am quite pleased with this painting; it shows the cool breeze coming off the ocean, with a bit of warmth left from the day.
