My studio assistant and I were moving paintings into storage and we ran across this work that I'd forgotten about. It was painted on location when I was teaching plein air classes where Lake Union feeds into the ship canal, under the Aurora Bridge.

I was reminded of these small paintings when a former student signed up for my Online Group Critiques. Cynthia Edmonds acquired these works while enrolled in my plein air classes over 20 years ago.

  • 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.

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.

  • Juanita Beach Park Apunte, oil on panel, 12 x 9 inches, copyright ©2019

I went painting on a Sunday with a few of my students, to Juanita Beach Park in Kirkland WA. It was a hot day that was barely mitigated by shade that we found along the creek.
