  • 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.

  • lightcityfog apunte, oil on panel, 9 x 12 inches, copyright ©2018

This painting, lightcityfog apunte is a small studio painting of a Spokane subject, the view from Division Street looking down Riverside Avenue. I'll be teaching a series of plein air workshops in Spokane this coming summer. You can find details on my classes website, as well as occasional flash discounts in the months before summer. Potential painting sites include Manito Park, Riverfront Park, Latah Creek and Centennial Trail.

  • Snohomish Valley w/ Mt. Rainier, oil on canvas, 36 x 48 inches, copyright ©2008

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.

I’ve been involved in the retooling of an organization that was active in the early to mid 1990s. The Northwest Figurative Artists’ Alliance began as an informal gathering at a local café, following figure sessions at the studio that I then shared with the painter Christel Kratohvil.
