Alley House

I'm going to start a series of paintings inspired by Bremerton alley houses. I work alot in the back alleys of side streets in Bremerton WA. Always lots of interesting structures and people, with the shipyard close by and Bremerton going through this retro renaissance. Young familys are fixing up the old craftsman style houses. The waterfront is being renovated and the arts district is expanding.

King Street Station

I'm posting a work in progress, since I spent most of the weekend framing for two shows coming up in February. This is a view from inside the train station in Seattle. Its a different subject for me and I have found this painting very challenging. I have it set aside and work on it between other paintings.

Farm off Pugh Road

I'm starting to really like these winter scenes in oil. This is one you see out of the corner of your eye driving down the road. Brakes screech, dirt flies and your jumping out of your truck to capture the light and the moment in time. Sometimes your late for work. Sometimes you barely miss getting hit by another car. Sometimes your batteries are dead in your camera.... and sometimes.... you get a painting. Sold

Coffee Pot with Apple, reworked , oil

I reworked this painting, changed the background and added some chroma to the apple which kinda throws off the color in the reflection but I think I'm done with it. This painting will be in the Treehouse show in February. For those of you who can come, it will be at the Treehouse Cafe in Lynnwood center on Bainbridge island for the whole month of February 07. Its a great place to have lunch or coffee. SOLD

I did some work there this week and took alot of pictures. It has been way too cold to paint outside lately,but I hope the fridged atmosphere reads in the painting. I'll be working in oil for awhile now getting ready for a show in February. This painting is for sale for $150.00 SOLD

Coffee Pot with Apple : oil, still life

Hopefully I have kept this painting fresh. I kept dinking around with the apple. I'm not done with it yet, I still have the still life set up in the studio. Also I took pictures in the prosess which I will post Sunday. I'm thinking about changing the background.

Copper teapot:still life,oil painting

This is the only painting I have completed this weekend, but I did have some great fellowship with good friends. God has blessed me richly in so many ways and I am thankful. I look forward to the opportunities that this new year will bring to bless others. Happy New Year! SOLD
