Posted October 6, 2016 from Seattle, WA I have been trying to discipline myself to stop painting  and concentrate instead on producing a book but that’s going so badly I fall off that wagon and paint now and then.  One thing I hate is not having...

Posted July 25, updated August 20, 2016 from Seattle, WA. I am so delighted with the last and maybe final incarnation of Orcas in the Salish Sea that I am publishing it at 12” x 36”.  The price will be $40.  I do not have the...

Posted May 9, 2016 from Seattle WA I'm working on a new poster that got into the queue ahead of Crabs of the Northwest.  It's Specialty and Characteristic Birds of the Chiricahua Mountains.  I measured wrong and had to add more board, and I ran off...

Posted April 13, 2016 from Seattle WA. All my painting time is going into "Birds of the Chiricahua Mountains" at the moment.  I have to ask Reed, the owner/operator of Cave Creek Ranch, if he thinks Buff-breasted Flycatcher should be in this, or if I've missed...

Posted March 14, 2016 from Seattle, WA It's been a busy time here at Ed Newbold Wildlife Artist as Poulsbo and Seattle Birds are now published and a new painting Orcas in the Salish Sea is now at the store in three sizes.   Orcas in the Salish...

Posted on Feb.7, 2016 from Seattle, WA On the 19th of this month I’ll be handing over six painting files to Susan Convery of Olympus Press. One will be “Birds of Seattle,” a painting I started in 1998. It was originally conceived as “Birds of Beacon...

Posted November 29, 2015 from Seattle, WA When our friends Richard and Gay saw the painting "Eagle at Spencer" when it was down in New Mexico  (That version was posted in my last blog) Richard might have been reading my mind because the first thing Richard said was "Don't...

Posted November 5, 2015 from Seattle,WA updated Nov 9 It’s been “Don’t look back” since I took a scissors and started my first crab stencil. There are 24 Crabs in the Northwest and I have 25% started for a Crabs of the Northwest Poster. This is one...

Posted Oct 1, 2015 from Seattle, WA; updated October 5, 2015   I decided to start four new paintings over the next year that will fall into the Northwest Romantic category.  Next is a Bald Eagle, I’ll have plenty to say about that when the time comes....

Posted September 2, 2015 from Seattle, WA I had that vision of a medium-sized Southwestern Bird Skinny when we were in Rodeo and it seems to be humming along.  This will be 6 x 18” trim-size skinny and it will no doubt open a Pandora’s Box (is that sexist...

Posted from Seattle, WA August 12, 2015 Hi everybody, I’m as thrilled as ever to get more paintings done, and almost as thrilled about making my old paintings even a tiny bit better. The trip to New Mexico created a spurt of new paintings with more on...

Posted July 3, 2015 from Seattle, WA A friend from High School visited in early June and Delia and I took him up to see Snoqualmie Falls, which some staff people from up there once told me is the second-most-visited tourist location in Western WA after the Pike...

Posted May 17, 2015 from Seattle, WA. Since I’ve been painting a third of a century now I’m looking back to resurrect paintings that I think were good ideas but that I never quite pulled off.   It only works if I never sold the original or...

Posted on March 28, 2015 from Seattle, WA  A good friend of ours is a pleinaire artist who works on a painting on site for maybe a couple hours and then doesn’t touch it after that. I’m the opposite, and if anything getting worse (or better, whichever...

Posted Jan 17, 2015 from Seattle, WA I’ve been delighted to not have ruined Skagit Snow Geese so far.   Instead of going into a long compulsive period, like I’m still in with Bottle Beach, I want to get this into the store ASAP.  I think I’ll...

Posted Dec 22, 2014 from Seattle WA When I start a painting that I have high hopes for it’s full speed ahead at first.  But on my best paintings I pass through a phase where they look pretty good (at least to me) really early and that’s...

Posted Dec. 17, 2014 from Seattle WA   A recent trip to the Skagit/Samish flats inspired a new painting start.  I’m beside myself with excitement about it, and have high hopes.  I’m trying to make time to move fast on it and hope to have something at...

Posted Nov 21, 2014 from Seattle, WA   I started a painting of Sunrise Point at Mt. Rainier in 2012 and published it that same year.  It had an American Kestrel sitting on a snag, foothills in the background and Mt. Rainier on the left.  I liked...

Posted October 5, 2014 from Seattle, WA It’s almost the norm in art class to be told to be swift and decisive.  Figure drawing classes like to go with the two-minute pose—get it done and go for fresh and expressive while at all costs avoiding that...

Posted August 28, 2014 from Seattle, WA   An article in the Seattle Times on the sighting of a Basking Shark in the Puget Sound did half the work for me.  It contained a sidebar on Sharks that occur regularly in the Sound and I was very...

Posted July 24, 2014 from Seattle, WA I’m closing down my first 1/3 century effort at painting and beginning my second.  My motto for the second, unlike the first, will be “Don’t paint hard, paint smart.” No the problem with that is I'd have to be smart.  I’m just going...

Posted April 17, 2014 from Seattle, WA   In 1998 I started the painting Birds of Beacon Hill.  Thankfully, I started it on canvas.  I got really excited about it for a while, but as often happens, I ran out of steam and into severe technical difficulties. ...
