Posted March 2, 2013 from Seattle, WA Seabirds of the Northwest is finished and will be available in 12 x 16 and 18 x 24 soon at the store.  The 12 x 16 should be on the website soon. Seabirds represented a departure in that I painted...

Posted Feb.11, 2013 from Seattle WA. It’s the Year of the Snake and I’m jumping on the bandwagon! I have my own photo ref of only three or four species of snakes.  It comes from living in the Northwest, where snakes can be an afterthought. But we...

Posted Jan 28, 2013 from Seattle, WA.  The Poulsbo painting, which can’t be titled “Last Tango in Poulsbo,” because the name on the boat “Tango” in the current version isn’t quite legible, will be at the store by Jan 29, 2013 in an 18 x 24...

Posted from Seattle Jan.17, 2013 I started a painting last year of boats in the Poulsbo Marina and I thought it might turn into a really good painting.  I made a movie about it but ended up just saying that I hadn’t maybe finished it but...

Posted December 20, 2012 from Seattle, WA In my last post I wrote about how I’m going to paint seabirds first, then worry about the arrangement when I get the scans into the computer.  I’m a long way from the finish line, but there are now...

Posted Nov. 28, 2012 from Seattle, WA A 14 x 18 poster of Seabirds of the Northwest has been on my mind for years now. Indeed, in 2009 I went to the trouble of making cutouts of Seabirds and posting them to a board for...

posted Nov.2, 2012 from Seattle, WA See the Movie "Last Tango in Poulsbo," at YouTube or here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhiOrvxzOWs&feature=youtu.be The title makes reference to the fact that the last boat in the lineup is named the Tango, and the boats are in Poulsbo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhiOrvxzOWs&feature=youtu.be In the five-plus minute movie, I discuss...

posted Oct 12, 2012 from Seattle, WA Since I’m running out of notecards, I’m going to have to publish a new batch.  I’ve been painting lately with one eye on the goal of good notecard-paintings.  But there’s an ever-present danger here.  Inevitably, when you paint, you...

Posted Sept. 21, 2012 from Seattle, WA Maybe about 20 years ago I did a painting on Gatorboard.  I had trouble in one area—probably some animal’s head—and there the gatorboard bubbled up.   I told myself: Take Gatorboard off the list of usable substrates.   But recently I had...

Posted June 17, 2012 from Seattle, WA   The first Seattle from the Bay painting I did has sold very well but when I went to make changes or improvements on it, the painting felt too small.  Working in miniature is no fun when you're painting buildings...

Posted April 12, 2012 from Seattle After a couple years of work I finally called it quits on the Rockfish painting and it will be available as an offset-litho signed 14 x 18 poster within 2 weeks.  I’ll be thrilled a little more even than usual...

Posted March 18, 2012 from Seattle, WA I’ve mainly been working on Rockfish and other preparations for the next offset litho printing coming soon.  But there are some all-new paintings in the studio.  The most critical is a 60 inch wide gatorboard painting I’m just beginning...

Posted Feb. 11 from Seattle  The Market Snow painting started in the last blog is going great, I couldn’t be happier.    It’s such a nice place from which to view the market, one wonders even if I should remove the snow and let the scene have...

Posted Jan 31, 2012 from Seattle  I’ve embarked on my third Pike Place Market snow try.  I want to get that French Impressionist look so everyone will need to seriously wish me luck there.    I went down to the market during the height of the snow...

Posted Dec. 5, 2011 from Seattle, WA This time of year I always get it in my head that people want snow paintings.  That’s not for-sure, but this is:  I’d like to have snow paintings in case anyone asks. This is my second attempt at snow in...

Posted  Nov. 17, 2011 from Seattle, WA I am hoping to visit the printers before all the New Year’s parties, and I have room on the sheet for two new 14 x 18 posters.  I’ve been working hard on “Last Call for Anacortes,” shown above, and...

Posted Nov. 11 2011 from Seattle, WA  Normally I start a painting and immediately start solving problems. But this time I'm not identifying what the problems are, so I'm just in finish-mode.  I wish I had a vase of tall blue flowers, I guess, and...

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...
