Here are three new 6"x6" landscapes on wood panel .
My latest series - scenes of my neighborhood in Ballard, also represents residential areas in general. Scenes that may get overlooked as passersby are often in too much a hurry to take note of beauty of the sea, ordinary buildings and other structures.
As a result of a class I took on working from photos, I disregard the original color and create my own limited palette often reflecting how I feel at the time. I find working on wood panel more enjoyable and conducive to working with acrylic than canvas as it glides across the surface more easily. Now what am I going to do with all those canvases that I have piled up in my studio?
