The scene is in Metchosin near Frank Mitchell's farm.

"Salt Marsh" Wilapa Bay oil 16 x 20

When this painting said everything I wanted to say about the salt marsh - I stopped for fear of overworking it.  This is my second painting from my painting trip up the Northwest coast of the United States and I just love the random meandering of the grassy banks of Wilapa Bay. We had lunch at Bennett's in Grayland. The restaurant is tops.

"Blue Pine" Mt.Tolmie, oil 11 x 14

Painted from Mt.Tolmie this morning. That's the Tuscany Village shopping centre opposite, with Mt.Doug above. I don't know the name of this blue pine but it certainly is eye-catching amongst the many garry Oaks in the area.
