"Lighthouse, San Juan Island" - Washington State

'Disappointed that a sale fell through this week but so far 224 other folks are looking at this pastel on Fine Art America (see the link, right). This lighthouse is iconic on the island, and I love the strong verticals and horizontals of the scene. Of course, I love pastels too....

"Crystal Cove Beach" vine charcoal 5x8

This Charcoal is so soft and subtle the real is actually better than the scan - like an original vs a print. Anyhow, this sketch is for a pastel I have in mind. A notan helps me to retain the value range. On the road to Tofino BC. We spoke to some surfer dudes who explained the various types of waves they enjoy.

My brother-in-law -- pastel 7 x 11

My brother-in-law and my sister invited us to join them on a tour of Europe earlier this year. What fun. We saw a lot, Lindsay knew a lot, having been a tour guide in his youth. Sometimes he knew even more than the local guides who showed us around this time. Thanks you guys.

"patchwork UK" oil on stretched canvas 16x20

From the hilltop of the White Horse of Westbury one can see for miles. I love the design that the successive farmers made over the years.
