  • Kla Ha Ya Park, oil on paper, 21 x 28 inches, copyright ©2015

This painting was done from a viewpoint adjacent the VFW Hall on Main Street (First) in Snohomish. I like the way the river meanders through the farmland, and River Road itself is a pleasant drive.

  • Charlie & Buffy, oil on canvas, size unknown (approx. 40 x 30 inches), copyright ©1983

I was sent this image of a painting that I did in 1983, by a person who had recently been gifted the work by her mother. The painting is of Spokane artist Charlie Palmer and his dog Buffy, behind his house on Ash, north of Gonzaga University. I haven't seen the painting since it was sold, shortly after it was completed.

  • Highway 14 Turnout, oil on panel, 16 x 20 inches, copyright ©2019

Early this month I participated in the Pacific Northwest Plein Air 2019 event and exhibition at Maryhill Museum. This was my fourth year, and fortunately was not beset by extreme heat, high winds and a 14,000 sq. mi. grass fire, as per last year.

  • Lowell Riverfront Trail (Rotary Park), oil on panel, 16 x 20 inches, copyright ©2019

Spent a few sessions painting with students at Lowell Riverfront Trail, off of Lowell/Snohomish River Road. The sun was out and hot, and the city of Everett had finally trimmed the hedges that over the past couple of years had completely obscured the river.

  • A Hot Day, oil on canvas, 23.5 x 29.5 inches, copyright ©1997

I have been contacted via email by a man in Indiana that has a painting of mine that he is interested in selling. It was purchased (not by him) in Portland at Elizabeth Leach Gallery sometime in the late 1990s. Anyone interested can contact me via this website, and I will forward your interest to the current owner of the painting.
