An Old Painting: Tug At Interbay

150 words

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.

Snohomish Valley w/ Mount Rainier

This painting, done in 2008, has never been exhibited. I was never really satisfied with the treatment of the distant Mount Rainier, and I may revisit the painting again with brush in hand.
