“Through The Keyhole” You may think I made the shape of these limbs up, but they indeed exist as I painted them hanging over the edge of a cliff in Ecola Park on the north Oregon Coast. Admittedly they have a sort of bonsai look about them but trust me where they are located no one pruned them. I painted this watercolor from photographs I took on one of my many “scouting for a painting” walks as the soft sunset light and large ocean swell inspired me to go searching. What caught my eye initially was the interesting shape of the limbs, but as IRead More →

By design I shaped the reflecting tide pool to simulate the linear form of the tree limbs. Original Framed Watercolor 29 ½” x 23” $1,850 – Image 19 ½” x 13” All Rights ReservedRead More →

My cares seem to evaporate when I walk on the beach especially at sunset. These two sea stacks at the south end of Cannon Beach are among my favorite to explore and paint. If it weren’t for our famous “Haystack Rock” these two would certainly be what Cannon Beach is known for. While the reflections are what people are likely drawn to, compositionally I selected the exact location to paint them from because it provides a stable triangle that is very comfortable to our western aesthetic and has been used for centuries by painters and sculptors. In essence the three rocks create a triangle withRead More →
