In Georgia O’Keeffe’s shadow – Pedernal

I had the opportunity to sit and paint surrounded by the landscape that Georgia O’Keeffe loved, at her Ghost Ranch. We sat under a big tree in Adirondack chairs and the mesas lay in front of me, clothed in brilliant light and shadows. The clouds all by themselves were an incredible show. This mesa is called Pedernal.

In the garden

Painted a little garden scene this morning, inspired by all the colors in my garden and all of the amazing flowers you can see all over Seattle. This is a little postcard that someone is going to get in the mail. Decisions, decisions. This painting is not for sale.

This postcard – sized painting says friendship and tranquility to me. I was really enjoying painting the colors of these two horses. I also like how the sky glows pink around them. This postcard is not for sale.

a crow day

Today was a crow kind of day. June is the month of the year when the days are the longest, and the crows who are raising babies are waking up much earlier (and waking me up too) than they do other months of the year. As always, living in Seattle, I see crows all the time doing their dance of life in the trees, on the street, in the green areas around us. These paintings are sold.
