Alki Afternoon: Sold


This painting is from a photograph taken on a beautiful summer morning looking West on Alki Beach Drive in Seattle, Washington.   I wanted to capture the brightness of the day through the shadows.  The distant figures are two people on bikes.

Cloudy Day: Sold

I painted canvas from a photo of a 100 year old apple and pear farm in the Northeast corner of Washington state.   It was a very soft day, overcase, with lovely Fall colors.

Northwest Sunset



Seattle's 2011 Fall has been gorgeous, and along with the beautiful reds and yellows in the trees, the sunsets have been spectacular.  I snapped a photo last week, and then used it for reference in this painting.
