Salmon River Delta - Sold

This was a painting I did this winter for a juried members show at our local gallery. Unfortunately I did not get a great photo of it before I sent it in and I was lucky enough to have it sell, so I did the best cropping and alignment job I could of the photo I had. I love this spot and have spent quite a bit of time there in my kayak, the painting also shows the valley of which I haved lived at the far end of for over twenty years.

Purple Haze - Sold

This is a painting I did in August of 2009 at a music festival, it was a silent auction gallery fundraiser. This was the first year I had participated, actually the first time I have ever painted plein air in public, which was a little nerve wracking at first. This is not my usual style, I think I was influenced a bit by the music and my surroundings.

Christmas Island Meditation

I had some extra time this morning, but not enough to paint so I thought I'd post this painting that I did last year for a member show at the local gallery:)

Gaye Adams, workshop paintings.

This weekend I spent three days with some great ladies and we painted up a storm. I learned alot from these still life paintings and hope to mindful of these lessons while I continue to push on painting from life. I was fortunate enough to have Gaye dive in and help me out on each one of these paintings (some more than others!)
