Wind Swept sold last Friday, to a new patron. They purchased two the week before and bought Wind Swept a day after it went online on Ugallery. Getting this one ready to ship out tomorrow, making sure all the edges are painted- and checking for spots I may need to "fix" and giving it the last coat of glaze I see all the across the surface at every paint stroke. This one does not convey well on camera- It is striking. I hope they love it as much as I do.
My watercolor Tree painting will be at Cortile Gallery in Provenience this summer starting on July 14. I'll post more details when the time gets closer.
Swept Away 36 x 48 watercolor diptych on board.
Peter Alpers saw this on Instagram and ask me to bring it when it was finished.
Whydby Island Garden 24 x 48 acrylic on canvas. Named in remembrance of our time on Whydby Island last Sunday. it was like living in a Wes Anderson movie. it was quirky, fun, and full of interesting characters especially Peter (my son-not the gallery owner) and Amanda. We ended our day at Musashi, one of the best Sushi places I'd ever been to. hmmm looking at the painting now those poppy flowers look like the roe in my sushi bowl.
I do love Seattle , even in the rain. Peter and Amanda took me to Gas Works Park beautiful spot to see the Seattle skyline. It was a cold down pouring rain and it was still stunning. Saw lots to inspire me. The Seattle Art Museum had a nice show on landscapes and since I'm starting to head in that direction I took full advantage of it.
The Pacific Northwest is gorgeous, If I lived there I would paint nothing but mountains and water. Landscape artist here have a hard row to hoe-well at least I think so. There scenery is much more captivating to me than New England. Aw well the grass is always greener.
Now its time to get back to work. Below is half the tree painting I started before I left last week. This panel is 24 x 36.
