Painting the Fjord at Tahuya

This is a painting of Tahuya, a spot in Washington that has a genuine inland fjord. Fjords: not all in Norway!

Sketch: The Palace Theater at The Speakeasy

A sketch from a discreet location – the Palace Theater at The Speakeasy in San Francisco.

Roots series

In celebration of the warmer weather and the end of the drought, I created this series of things that grow in the ground. I always like cutaway-style illustrations so I created a view of what’s above and below the ground.

Chinese Folktales on Repainted Calendars

Each of these started off as a giveaway calendar from a Chinese restaurant. I’ve been collecting these and “repainting” them by painting over everything except the main image.

Tumultuous

I’ve been meaning to do more with watercolor pencils to get a better grasp of how to work with them.

Weathered

This one is for friends Ted and Claire who live in Colorado, land of extremely variable weather. They wanted a painting that reflected some of the color and variety they see on a daily basis.

I’d had a few artist trading cards with me, so I started sketching the view from Roy’s.

A beach scene for H&A

I decided I wanted to paint more, and to make more paintings for friends.

Sitting on the dock of the fjord

I brought down a folding chair to the dock and sketched this during two sessions.
