  • Lake Union, oil on canvas, 30 x 48 inches, copyright ©2003

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.

  • Hiram Chittenden Locks (Ballard), oil on panel, 18 x 36 inches, work in progress copyright ©2018

Sometimes a new start is abandoned before it really gets going. Then after several months out of sight and mind, it seems to awaken a spark of inspiration. This is just such a beginning. Normally this would be a subject for my Painter's Workshop page, but I thought I would share it on my Home page.

  • Tug At Interbay, oil on canvas, size unknown, copyright ©1988

This painting was done in the late 1980s, when I first started showing at Davidson Galleries. It represents a tugboat moored at Interbay, between Myrtle Edwards Park and Smith Cove Park. We tried to sell it to Foss Inc., who operate a fleet of tugs in Puget Sound, but they would only buy it if the tugboat itself had their logo. It would have made the painting look strange, since the logo would have been illegible at the distance the tugboat is depicted.
