  • Latah Creek Spring, oil on canvas, 30 x 40 inches, work in progress copyright ©2015

This is a work in progress for my upcoming show in Spokane. It is an overview of a segment of Latah Creek where I lived between 1982 and 1985, before moving to Seattle. Latah Creek was also called Hangman Creek, after General George Wright had Native Americans that thought they were attending a treaty signing summarily lynched.

I’ve been re-working my website portfolio to present galleries with higher resolution images. This has involved trying to relocate the original images that have been lost due to failed disks, computer transfers, etc. Fortunately I was able to find a large cache of original files stored online in a warehouse image library.
