Poplars in the Gloaming

From a walk at dusk at Menucha. I love when evening falls, everything flattens out. The world is spatially more ambiguous.

North Shore

I`ve been living with this painting in my bedroom and think it was the best thing I did in my residency at Sitka. It`s subtle but I got what I love about a northwestern beach in winter.

We were in Menucha this week walking and taking in the northwest autumn. Just amazing. I did this little watercolor after we got home yesterday.

Poplars Across the Field

After ruining a promising watercolor, I couldn`t leave the studio last night without trying to make something interesting. This tiny landscape was painted over a previous effort.

The Cliff Joins the Water 3

The actual section of cliff along Oswego Creek is only about three feet long making my painting 'larger than life'.

Autumn Slough Study

After a session last night on my big canvas of the cliff, I did this small study. I liked it and immediately began a large version.

Another Autumn

'Early Fall', this one from 2005. A view from the car, driving to Ashland, painted from memory.

Autumn efforts

I`m working on the third 'The Cliff Joins the Water', another big version. Meanwhile, until our local color really gets going, here are some paintings of fall from the recent past.
