Here are two recent pieces, both done from scenes on the Snoqualmie River near my house. The first one is a simple study in oil paints on an 8 x 10" canvas board - the subject is a group of rocks and the surrounding water. This was painted from a photo taken on a stretch of the river downstream from famous Snoqualmie Falls. The second piece is a 9 x 12" piece done in soft pastels on location (plein air) on the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River, in a two hour session on a glorious sunny and warm morning.
