"The Great Tortoise Hostel" Seattle city scenes

Some of you may remember this painting from 07......I have pulled it out of the closet ....finally!.....and finished it. I have been spending some time finishing or reworking old paintings and I will share those in my next few posts......Kinda got behind with the blog....what with shows, commissions, ...being sick...=/.....AND THE BIG WEDDING!....Annie and I will be married on Sunday!!=].. In fact, this painting was from an image that I took on one of our first dates before Ann went to Uganda.

If any of you are in the area and would like to come to the wedding, it would be a blessing to share this happy day with you...The wedding will take place at Liberty Bay Presbyterian Church in Poulsbo this Sunday at 3:00 pm.

"Coffee Pot with Apple" oil still life painting

I love this coffee pot and have painted it several times. The reflections of light are always a challenge and a joy to paint.

"Field Fir" plein air landscape painting

Sometimes I spend the whole day at the studio without a plan of attack or any inspiration. I usually end up walking in circles and not getting anything done. One day this week was like that.....At the end of the day I sat down, prayed briefly and then turned my easel towards the window and painted the field outside. I consider this insignificant little study an answer to prayer and a confirmation from my Best Friend.

"Arts in the Woods" is coming up this weekend! ... Be there or be square!...=].......check out the Cultural Arts Foundation website for more info..... or come to the Knowles studio to pick up brochures and maps of all the other studios. Hope to see you there!!

"Bell Town" Seattle city scene oil painting

My son Maury is going to school at the Art Institute of Seattle for game design. This little sidewalk cafe is in Belltown near AIS. When I am walking through the city ...or just about anywhere......I snap pictures with my pocket digital. I don't even look at what I'm taking till I get home and then go through and delete all the junk and keep anything that looks promising. I liked the perspective of the red umbrellas in this shot.

"Easy Pickins" seagull in flight oil painting

Me and Annie were sitting in the sun watching a gentleman feed the seagulls on the ferry to Seattle awhile back. I pulled out the ever ready pocket camera and took some shots of the seagulls in flight. The images were really blurry but that's OK! I'm not a photographer, I'm a painter...=]
