Updates, Fall on San Juan Island

Out on location, a start on a fall painting near an island pond. The colors of foliage here are olive, gold, red and mustard. Though, it's not like fall in New England, the fall colors here in Washington have a certain kind of beautiful feel.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate for another day or 2 out on location.

Good news, our weekly figure drawing group is hanging a show at the Island Arts Museum this week. The opening will be on Friday , Oct 17, 5 to 7 pm. Participating artists include Ann Walbert, Paul Chadwick, Bryne Barnard, Richard Barnhart, Linda Degnan-Cobos, Matt Dollahite, and myself.

I was just informed that one of my 100 Soldiers series was choosen to be the featured artwork on Artdoxa, an international website devoted to contemporary art.

Flower Bouquet, Reverse Painting on Glass

Enjoying the end of summer bouquet grown by Margaret Thorson from Waldron Island.
This is a reverse painting on glass, a new technique for me, best done in the studio, using a big sheet of glass to paint on. I used oil paints and painted in layers, going backwards, no corrections...... I've been inspired by Gabriel Munter to try this.
