" Break Wall" Silverdale Waterfront Park, oil landscape painting

I drove by the Silverdale Waterfront Park last week and it happened to be a beautiful foggy morning just as the sun was burning off the haze. It's amazing how ordinary or familiar scenes are transformed by atmospheric conditions.

"The Same Moon" landscape, oil painting

In the morning setting, and the evening, rising , has been the most beautiful full moon the last few days. I share a love for this moon and the One who made it, with a dear loved one who is on the other side of the world right now but who looks up at the same moon.

"Great Tortoise Hostel" Seattle cityscape, oil painting

Man it's been a long time between posts! Sorry about that! To all you kind folks who have been inquiring as to my health and whereabouts, I am fine and still painting!... I was pleasantly distracted during the Holidays but took the time to take some photos. This painting of Seattle is 24x24 in. I have been working on it several weeks now and it is still a work in progress. Thing is,, it has sentimental value for me and I don't think I will be able to sell it!
I checked out " Richard Shmidt Paints the Landscape" from Smartflix.. Its pretty good..I'm starting to get jazzed about getting outside to paint. The weather here has been crazy this year but if R.S. can paint in a snow storm I guess I can paint in good old Seattle rainslushicesnowmuckdrizzlefloodfogsleet.
