I am happy to announce that I have a piece in the "Fate of the Forest" show at the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham. This acrylic painting was inspired by my artist residency at Fort Worden last summer and is entitled "The Woods Beyond" so titled because although the houses are all nestled on this side of the forest, be it cayotes, deer or something else, one never knows what will emerge from the other side. It was fun to attend the opening and view this show with all it's varied interpretations.
I just finished a series of landscape paintings inspired scenes in my neighborhood. In these urban landscapes I love playing with a limited color palette and simple shapes to turn everyday scenes
into something worth looking at. They are all on mat board, about
7"x 14" and I intend to frame them up larger under glass. They will also serve as prototypes for larger works on panel.
