No. 868 Roaming the Village


Roaming the Village
Oil on Canvas Panel
7" x 5"

Oh, my! We had some terrific bird paintings come out of class last month. Yes, our theme was chickens.  I found this fellow calmly dodging a toddler at Country Village in Bothell.

On a separate note, after weeks of feverishly working on paintings for the Rexville Grange show, I'm happy to say they are done and delivered! For those who are interested in attending this great little show while they are checking out the daffodils or tulips in Mt. Vernon...

No. 867 Tulip Fields at Sunset


Tulip Fields at Sunset
Oil on Gessobord
6" x 6"

I just finished painting a 12" x 12" version of this one. Wow, that was a gorgeous evening. The perk of spending an entire day in the tulip fields is you get to see these special light effects.

No. 865 Return to the Fields


No. 865 Return to the Fields
Oil on Canvas Panel
5" x 7"

It's that time of year! Spring has arrived and the tulips are poking their heads up in the garden. For me that means getting ready for the art show in Mt. Vernon. I really enjoyed getting to know the local artists there last year and look forward to hanging out with them again.

I'm giving you guys first shot at my newest collection of tulip field paintings before I take them up to the show...

Once again returning to the wetlands near my home on a grey but not super soggy day. I have to say I'm really starting to dig this winter color palette.

The last of the January primrose paintings. I found this old Coca-Cola tray at an antique store in Snohomish. At the time I felt a little guilty about buying it. Guilty no more! I LOVE those primroses in that old tray. They make me smile every time I spot them outside the front widow.

Two of my favorite subjects this January- together!



This is my favorite winter plein air painting layer. It's a second hand cashmere sweater - soft, thin, warm, colorful and wonderful. I purchased several of them from Thredup.com averaging about $20 each.
