"Hansville Truck" oil on panel

Every once in a while I have to paint an old truck. This one sits down by the Hansville store. The beach is behind me and I am looking up towards the road...=]

"Queen Anne Poppies" oil on panel

I am privileged to announce that I will be an artist showing work at the Directors Gallery on Bainbridge Island. If you live in our area be sure to go down to Winslow for the "First Friday" artwalk and visit the gallery located at 126 Madrone lane.

This change in venue will affect the way I will be selling my work. You can contact me at for more information. At this time paintings will be sold through three galleries that offer my paintings....The Knowles Studio, (see links) The Directors Gallery on Bainbridge Island and "Crow Valley Pottery" on Orcas Island. I will be offering smaller format panel paintings 6x6 and 5x7 for $200.00 from this blog when available. Thanks for your patience as I work out the progression of my career as a full time artist.

This painting was done from a photograph I took up on Queen Anne hill when Annie and I went over for a dinner and picture taking excursion....=]... 8x10 oil on panel sold

"Fields of Gold" oil on gessoed card

I had a bit of a hard time coming up with a title for this painting. But since I am trying to learn the song on my guitar I named it "Fields of Gold". The song was written by Sting but I love the way Eva Cassidy sings it on her album "Live at Blues Alley".

This is yet another view of the field next to Knowles Studio where I get to work (thanks Leigh!)

"Counting Sheep" oil landscape painting

There were hundreds of sheep grazing on the lush grass in this field on the Key Peninsula. I mix my greens the way Richard Schmid recommends in his video......Veridian with various yellows and some white.....Me thinks I over-greened the greens....if ya know what I mean.
