"The Lime Kiln Lighthouse" and plein air painting in the San Juan Islands

I have just returned from four days of whale watching and plein air painting in the San Juan Islands. I did six paintings in four days and lots of sketches......also I had many adventures and met up with friend and fellow painter J Matt Miller.

When I came home I received a phone call congratulating me on winning First Place and Best of Show at the North Kitsap Arts and Crafts juried show for my painting "Kingston Ferry Dock". A nice confirmation of my decision to quit the job and paint full time.....=]....PTL!

Lots to do so I will be posting my paintings and pictures from the trip every day for awhile ....Stay tuned!...=].........and thanks for following "In Plein Air"! sold

God is good to show us, speak to us!!Your paintings are very beautiful and some remind me of a hopeful Hopper. Your maturity in brushwork is amazing.
