Wetlands Along the River
From a few years ago.
It`s been a struggle to get some painting done. Christmas isn`t the problem, I`m finishing up my show which begins Jan. 5. It`s in the non-profit Lakewood Center for the Arts, which means I`m artist, publicist, installer, framer, designer etc. It`s not such a chore, I just miss open ended sessions to work. Our dark, wet winters with their long nights are so good for painting.
My website was updated too! Anneliese Dehner and Jeremy McWilliams did a stand out job again. They are a joy to work with, very professional and reasonably priced. Their email addresses are in the side bar.
Happy holidays to us all!

Winter Rainforest Study
I may have found a bridge between Yupo and traditional watercolor paper. It`s paper made for airbrush; acid free and very smooth and tough. Worth playing with maybe. It took the paint nicely and had good lift too. Seems versatile.
BTW, it`s called coated Airbrush made by Canson, acid free, 152 lb.

Oswego Spring Study
It can`t be more than a half mile from the dam holding back the lake to it`s finish at the Willamette River, yet Oswego Creek`s entire brief stretch is unbelievably gorgeous. There is a wealth of material to work from there.
To install a new sewer system the city has drained 70% of the lake this winter. When the draw down was happening kayakers were running the rapids where John is standing in the photo. I was worried that my new discovery had been destroyed by the force of the water. Needlessly. Just a month later we were back there and it was as lush as ever.

I`m enjoying working on flat unstretched canvas but photographing it is another story. The weave is too apparent and when I shoot the picture, I`ll see transparent diagonal lines across the image. ?? Sometimes these will also show up in a thumbnail but not the enlarged photo. I may finally have to read the manual.
