"The Walker" figure landscape painting

I captured this image as I was walking back from Faith Bible Church on 13th and Yessler a few Sundays back. It was a beautiful Sunday morning and the light was illuminating the spring flowering trees.

"The Pond at Allair Farm" oil , landscape painting

Still obsessed with this little pond at Allair.....something about the afternoon sun striking the old growth cedar stump out in the water. If you live in the Pacific Northwest and get out in the woods at all, you would be familiar with a scene like this ......the huckleberries growing atop old stumps hundreds of years old.....This is a studio painting using pictures and sketches from my last field trip to the farm.....not quite sure if I am finished with it yet...Thinking about adding the Mallard duck that I observed landing in the water.

"Spring Day" landscape, oil painting

I have spent a wonderful week getting reacquainted with my fiance, Ann, who has just returned from an eighteen month commitment to serve as a nurse, helping in the clinic at New Hope Kassana in Uganda. I am very thankful to have her home and look forward to serving as a couple in the work that God will lead us in the future, beginning with a week in July, as nurse and cabin counselor at camp "High Rock", a summer camp for kids from the Yakima Tribe in White Swan, in association with Harrah community church and Sacred Road Ministries.

In between I will be trying to keep up with my painting!.......I couldn't resist the sunlight illuminating this flowering plum tree on Lemolo Shore Dr.
