Whiskey Run

23 Dec


18″ x 24″

The road, Whiskey Run, ends on this Oregon beach that is approved for vehicles. Mud tracks curved through the newly washed-in logs, some of which had to be cut to make way for the cars. Freshly sawn logs created some nice orange color to contrast with the browns and blues of the beach.


Key Hole Rock

17 Mar


24″ x 18″

This painting was done from a reference photo taken on the same evening as my earlier painting, Secret Rock Garden.  It is a fascinating place to explore and paint, different each time the ocean has a minus tide and permits visitors.  In this view, the light streams through the hole in the massive rock to illuminate the tide pools and sea life covered rocks.  I like how the tide pool points back to the window in the rock.
