  • Rotary Park, oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches, ©2018

This is a work-in-progress, a painting that has been chased all over the place over the past year. The main problem is that the City of Everett neglects to trim back the foreground, and I keep having to shift my point-of-view to see my subject. By summer's end I suspect that the Snohomish River will no longer be visible, and I'll just be painting a profusion of jungle à la Le Douanier Rousseau.
