The dynamic Spokane River, w/ Post Street Bridge and Monroe Street Bridge in the background. This painting was worked up very quickly, with loose gestural strokes over a preliminary grid. I wanted the brushwork to seem as if it were just danced onto the surface, like the spontaneity and rhythm of the river itself.

Above The Falls 2 presents a more focused view of the far shore, with the old Washington Waterpower building dominating.
