  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Old Junk Store, oil on panel, 24 x 30 inches, work in progress copyright ©2018

This is a work in progress, an old junk store in Snohomish WA. I've worked on this over several sessions, usually with students also painting. The traffic is pretty thick, and often parked cars obscure the view of the storefront.
