Posted from Seattle, WA Nov. 3, 2011 Nobody’s getting married, I’m working on paintings that are old and some that are new.   New trumps old these days so here’s my latest new start:   I am delighted, as I usually am at this stage.  Sometimes people pick up...

Posted Sept. 30, 2011 This is the latest version of my painting of Deception Pass.  This shot is just a snap shot of the painting, but I'm posting it because I feel there are atmospherics creeping into this work and there's a possibility it's gone up a...

Posted Sept. 18, 2011 from Seattle The Tanagers are a relentlessly colorful group of birds that emanate from the neotropics.  The only one that makes it up to the Mountain West and Northwest is the famed Western Tanager.  Sometimes you'll see a pale young male and say,...

Sept. 17, 2011 from Seattle, WA This is what the Deception Pass painting is looking like now.  I'm no longer captivated by this painting and it will go into a sales-testing pattern rather than be put on the offset-litho publication schedule.  I've also been working on...

Posted August 20, 2011 from Seattle, WA.    Before I dropped everything to work on the 7th and last Washington State Birding Trail Map, I was wroking on this Osprey at Deception Pass painting.  Having given it a break gave me fresh eyes, and I feel like...

posted August 11, 2011   The painting that will be on the cover of the 7th and last Birding Trail Map, featuring two Eagles on a snag at Cape Flattery, doesn't exist. Well, it sort of does.  Ed Newbold began an Eagle/Flattery painting in the middle oughts and...

June 20, 2011 from Seattle.  Updated August 10, 2011 Below is the beginning, if it works, of the upper right quadrant of the seventh and last Birding Trail Maps of Washington State.   This map will cover the trough of Western Washington from Pierce and Kitsap Counties...

posted June 24, 2011; Seattle, WA It's good to see the painting represented on a computer screen--it really helps identify the flaws.  I think I need a lot more definition in the foliage of the Firs marching up the side of the cliff.  I still feel...

Hi all, Update June 19, 2011; posted June 13, 2011 from Seattle, WA. I'm tired of finishing stuff. (The last thing I finished was Common Loon, which is up in the store under 11 x 14s and 8 x 10s.)  It's time to start a slew of...

Updated April 8, 2011 (first posted March 15, 2011 updated March 27, 2011) Common Nighthawks have traditionally found urban habitats very amenable. I thought I'd take the iconic Nighthawks painting by Hopper and use it for the background.  I just have to build the buildings up...

Jan 10, 2011.  What seems to have been a success in reworking that old long-abandoned flying Eagle painting (it's been selling!) got me interested in other paintings that I was storing closest to the dumpster, and had given up for dead.  One is a snow at...

January 24, 2011 I usually don't finish things, just keep dinking around on them.  But I'm in a Finishing Frenzy! [caption id="attachment_344" align="aligncenter" width="585" caption="Anna's Hummingbird in Snow, painting by Ed Newbold c 2011"][/caption] This is a painting I mentioned in the Something New post and it will be available...

A few years back there was a news article on the radio about the Pennsylvania diaspora.  I believe the PA gov't had a pilot program then to try to woo back former residents who had left upon coming of age.  Being a member of that...

Where's Duke? is almost sold out! [singlepic id=16 w=400 h=300 float=center] July 17, 2010. Where's Duke? is a limited edition print of a painting of a Raccoon family I did in the 80s, and it's down to 5 or 6 left at the store. I hate the...

Nov. 10, 2010 This is a new finish on Cats of North America. This is available at the Pike Place store in two sizes as of yesterday. I've also been reworking Warblers of the West and I'll put that up soon....

Oct 19, 2010. It's not the standard advice you hear from the art world, but I have always believed in going back to old paintings and reworking them until they are fully resolved however long that takes. I painted on one painting for 19 years...

I'll teach the seminar on obsessively reworking old paintings Nov. 11, 2010 Warblers of the West. I'm deep in this re-paint job but questioning it at the same time--appropriate for this Seasonal Affective Disorder time of year. I fret about things like whether the Colima Warbler...

Tough job ahead on Eagle Nov. 3 , 2010. I started this Eagle in New Mexico in a completely different pose. What a mess there with the fir branch of the bonsai evergreen. Can I bring that foreground into compliance and make the Eagle look a...
