  • NYC Still Life, oil on canvas, size unknown, copyright ©1979

This humble still life began as a large figure subject, during the time that I was living in New York City. The model was a woman who danced with the Twyla Tharp Dance Company. She was also the wife of a friend, although they were shortly divorced.

At the suggestion of my student Sarah Anderson, we’ve been painting at Larsen Lake Blueberry Farm, in Bellevue, WA. It’s a beautiful spot, with interesting views of the lake and the farm itself.

  • View From Claire's (Griffin House) 2, oil on panel, 12 x 24 inches, copyright ©2017

I spent 4 days participating in the Pacific Northwest Plein Air 2017 event at Maryhill Museum, on the Columbia River Gorge. It was a grueling affair, with temperatures as high as 110 degrees. There were 42 artists involved, and the event culminated in a month-long exhibition at Maryhill Museum, where it will hang until August 27th.

  • Lightning Over Spirit Lake, oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches, copyright ©1993

Many years ago, when my mother was still alive, she asked me to do a painting of lightning over Spirit Lake, Idaho. Spirit Lake is where I was born, and where my family had lived for the first seven years of my life.

  • Christel I, oil on canvas, 23 x 22 inches, copyright ©1991

From 1989 to 1997 I lived with a woman named Christel Kratohvil. At that time she was a talented painter, but also very temperamental. My late friend Mark Perry claimed that she was as “crazy as a peach orchard boar.”

  • Sammamish River at Bothell Landing, oil on canvas, 30 x 40 inches, work in progress ©2017

This painting was begun over a year ago. It had been painted during the midsummer months where everything is boringly green. I had never been completely satisfied with it, so decided to rework the painting in mid-spring, hoping that the more dynamic range of tertiary colors and deeper atmospheric perspective would make a more interesting image.
