Some Recent Oil Paintings



20x16 inches
... and some not so recent.  Most of them sit around in my studio for a while and get additions and changed before I sign them and put them on my web site.

This one got changed a lot throughout the process, especially after my cataract surgery.  Its a muskeg off the road between Gustavus and Bartlett Cove.

8x10 inches
Here is a fall view looking East from the dock road in Gustavus.

Edge of the Field

watercolor 17x22
This is a view from one of my walking routes, along the Salmon River in Gustavus.  I painted it in February before going to Florida to visit relatives and have cataract surgery.  When I came home in March it looked a lot different than I remembered..... everything did.... and I adjusted some of the color and found a lot of things to fix.  Since the surgery things are much brighter.... I squint now looking out the window at our snow covered field.  Colors are more vivid; most amazing are blues.

Finally......



This is a collage of some of my small postcard-size watercolors, painted in 2014 and 2015.  These were all views from my south facing windows.   I was able to get two images  from most of the paintings.  I did this last winter and it was in my show in Juneau in July.

Though this is old, finally, I'm back posting on this blog, such as it is or has been. When I'm painting regularly, putting things here and on my other blog seem to keep me going.
