Juanita Beach Park Apunte

46 words

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.

Farm To Market Road

0 words

These paintings of Farm To Market Road, near Edison WA, were first exhibited at i.e. gallery in Edison in 2016. Farm To Market Road 2 was slightly reworked in 2019. They're both small oil on panel works, and it's a subject that I'll probably return to. I love the elegant lines of the foothills that can be seen from there, as well as along nearby Chuckanut Drive.

Some Recent Apuntes

45 words

I've been doing a number of small studies on Gessoboard, a commercial preparation of acrylic gesso-primed hardboard. They are done quickly, usually only an hour or two at most, and  measure either 8x10 or 9x12  inches. I call them Apuntes, Spanish for notes or sketch, after having seen hundreds of Joaquín Sorolla's studies on cigar box lids, at an exhibition in San Diego in the early 1990s.
