Headland Sea Sky
Little paintings I can do sitting down, that`s my near future. I didn`t know I could really do it. Every time in the past, whenever I tried to sit, within minutes I was on my feet. I think because the visual distance is better and I can reach things faster. I`m learning new ways of working.

If any Oregonians know of a place on the coast that I could rent and paint in for a week, please let me know. I really want to paint some seascapes! The dates I`m thinking of are Sept. 20-27. Thanks!

That was then. Now I find it far more useful to enjoy an environment while taking photos. I pay much more attention to my own reactions. What stimulates pleasure? Why? How could I translate that into paint? I`ll still have a sketchbook but it`s used now more for notes and for minimal drawings meant to be scaffolds of sorts for later paintings. When I download the camera, I`ll look all through the image and spot sections that have potential as a reference. The cameras are so good now, just mere fragments of an image will have a whole lot of content.
These drawings were done in Laurelhurst Park in SE Portland, near where I lived in the mid 90s. It was nature I could walk to and I spent a lot of time there.

My friend, Hali Felt`s book "Soundings" has just been published. It`s a biography of the little known scientist, Marie Tharp. She mapped the entire ocean floor and radically expanded the field of plate tectonics. Here is Hali`s article on girls, science and destiny from the Huffington Post.
