Show Opens Tomorrow

Here's Margo putting the finishing touches on the Kopachuck Park, Requiem for the Trees show at the Harbor History Museum and one of my entries. The reception is tomorrow at 5:30 pm, show runs for 2 weeks so get there soon!  There's a great range of materials and techniques represented.  The arts community really stepped up to the challenge in a very short time.

Marked tree & Towhee

from my sketchbook
I've been busy working on the Kopachuck Tree project.  If you haven't heard about it check out our blog here.  I stole a little time to enjoy some conversation with the old trees and a towhee.  This tree is marked to be taken down soon :(  makes me very sad.... but in the meantime it is a peaceful place to be.  I have two large studio paintings in the works and hopefully there'll be time to finish them after I return from hiking the Olympics High Divide with the CWA kids this next week.  Happy trails!

Sunset Swim

What can be better than a cooling swim after a hot, late summer day?

Blue Flight

Can you hear him squawking at you as he flies off through the trees?  Foggy forest and a bird in flight, no better subjects to practice "losing" edges.  Stellar jay's are the most amazing blue aren't they?

Flower Farm

This is inspired by a friend's place.... Morgan Creek Farm.  You can find her at the local farmers markets, best flowers (and heirloom tomatoes) in the land!
