  • 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.

My studio has been undergoing some changes, as I try to carve out some space to continue working. It's a losing battle, but I am getting help from my studio assistant, Julie Stonebraker. This cleanup also involves cleaning out a storage space that is full of paintings and other items.

  • Bob Pepper's Farm, oil on canvas, 11 x 22 inches, copyright ©1999

I was reminded of these small paintings when a former student signed up for my Online Group Critiques. Cynthia Edmonds acquired these works while enrolled in my plein air classes over 20 years ago.

  • Kla Ha Ya Park, oil on paper, 21 x 28 inches, copyright ©2015

This painting was done from a viewpoint adjacent the VFW Hall on Main Street (First) in Snohomish. I like the way the river meanders through the farmland, and River Road itself is a pleasant drive.

  • 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.

  • Men's Furnishings, oil on canvas, 48 X 66 inches, copyright ©1989

I've belatedly learned that one of my paintings was in an auction of American art at Sotheby's in New York in October 2018. The work sold at the top end of its estimate. It was originally sold c.1989 at Elizabeth Leach Gallery in Portland OR, to Patrick Duffy, the actor best known for his role as Bobby Ewing in the series 'Dallas'. It was listed in Sotheby's catalogue as "from the collection of Patrick and Carlyn Duffy." Patrick's wife, Carlyn Rosser passed away in 2017.

  • 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.
