Hull-BayBoundNurseLog

Bay Bound Nurse Log

It would be interesting to know just how long some of these old logs have been floating around inside the bay. I’ve observed some for over 40 years as I’ve contemplated painting them. They are one of many things that say “Pacific Northwest” to me.
Nurse Logs are a bit like a tiny island that occasionally, on exceptionally high tides associated with heavy rainfall, simply floats away in silence to a new location with little or no damage done. As they decompose over time their nutrient rich “soil” provides a start for the next generation.

Hull-CherryBlossomShowers

Cherry Blossom Showers

Outside, behind my studio, grows a cherry tree. We welcome the blooms each year with a sigh of relief knowing another winter is waning. The studio window frames it in such a way that one day as a gust of wind blew the loose blossoms from their hold I thought what a unique painting that would make. We framed this watercolor as I have a few other times for special paintings with polyester resin on the inside of the glass so it looks as though you are gazing out a window with raindrops on the outside which I was as inspiration struck.

Hull-IntoandOutOf

Into & Out Of

The fog that is! I love the fact that there’s always something going on at the beach. Some days it’s as simple as the breakers slowly dissipating at our feet at the edge of the sea, and that’s just fine with me. Walking at the south end of Cannon Beach takes you past these two basalt sea stacks at Silver Point. I’m frequently on this peaceful stretch of sand in the mornings as I prepare for the day ahead.

Hull-WhereDaffodilsStillBloom

Where Daffodils Still Bloom

Decades ago there were several beach homes along the stretch of coast between Silver Point and Arcadia Beach. The cost of maintenance and repair of the access road eventually drove the State of Oregon to purchase the land from the owners. The blooming daffodils each spring remind me of that charming, now long gone little beach front community.

Hull-Pacific

Pacific Breaker

I started surfing in 1966 so it’s fair to say I’ve been in love with waves for literally 50 years. The photographs I used to paint this oil were taken on a beautiful January day with a large swell running. As I rounded the corner and caught sight of the ocean my jaw dropped and I immediately pulled over to just drink it all in. I utilized a telephoto lens to pull my subject in from a distance and later worked in the studio trying to capture the power of the breaker, and beauty of the spindrift created by the offshore wind.

On Our Way

Carol and I were on our way down the Oregon coast for the umpteenth time when this old cedar fence caught my eye near Cape Perpetua. The wildflowers and mood at the edge of the sea completed the story. By the way, no matter how well thought out a painting seems initially, there are ALWAYS surprises and opportunities to make it stronger during the painting process. As I neared the end of this watercolor I realized I needed to interrupt the viewer’s eye as it traveled along the fence line. Adding someone’s driftwood walking stick accomplished that. To be honest, there are paintings that change substantially from inspiration to completion. Years ago I realized the only thing that mattered is if the painting “works” in the end. The responsibility and freedom an artist has is to make sure that happens.

“Out on the Edge”

I generally stop at the spot where this storm sculpted tree resides as I wind my way up and down the coast. The tree is one reason (checking the surf is the other, but we won’t talk about that here). The moody, foggy sunset was what inspired this painting, along with the tree of course. Living on the edge of the sea 24/7 shows its determination, resilience and in the end, personality- kind of like the rest of us.

 Silver & Gray

The Pacific Northwest coast is officially a temperate rainforest renowned for its timber. Since everything flows into the sea, our beaches get a fresh batch of driftwood with each passing winter. Large trees like these are rare of course, but they also stick around for decades. There is a wonderful silvery hue, a patina if you will; these old logs develop over the years of living life in the sun and rain.
In the foggy background of this watercolor are the “Sisters” of Siletz Bay, one of my favorite subjects to paint. Inspiration took root when I noticed the basic form of the Sisters repeated in miniature in what was left of the limbs on the driftlog. I use the design principle of repetition frequently in my work to unify the composition.
