  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
