So honored and excited that my painting, ‘Suquamish Welcoming’, hangs in the front window of Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend, Washington! This show is up through the end of March, in the front gallery and then migrate to the back gallery through December.
This, I just finished yesterday. Watercolor and gouache, 12″ x 18″, canoes at Little Boston during the 2018 Canoe Journey. Prints available soon. The framed original will join my other Canoe Journey paintings at Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend, Washington.
This is exciting! Port Townsend Art Walk is Saturday, March 2nd, 5:30-8:30 pm. Come say hello! https://ptguide.com/pt-events/eventdetail/201027/-/monthly-art-walk
I will be at Northwind Arts Center with my Canoe Paintings. Looking forward to seeing you. https://northwindarts.org/exhibits/
This is my most recent completed painting. I call it ‘Chetzemoka’, as the cliffs of Chetzemoka Park of Port Townsend appear in the distance. This watercolor and others, all featuring images from our Salish Canoe Journey, will be on view and for sale at the Northwind Gallery in Port Townsend, Washington. I have prints available as well. Please join us for the opening during Art Walk on Saturday, March 2, 2018, 5:30-8.
The composition on this one is proving to be a great challenge. There are a few things that stand out for me and will be a fun challenge to turn around. Especially since this is watercolor. I’ll post more progress in the next week.
This, mostly complete with a few details to polish up. Watercolor and chalk pastel, 18″ x 14″. Foreground is The Singing Coho, background is one of the Cowlitz family canoes and the middle ground features the wind, though I don’t know which family this is. The design is stunning. Image based upon 2016 Canoe Journey at Suquamish. Many are currently paddling with Puyallup as final destination. Safe travels to all! Can’t wait to see you in Suquamish again.
My recent watercolor called ‘Arrived’, 20″ x 28″ framed. Aren’t these canoes beautiful? The foreground canoe is called ‘Dancing Serpant’, most likely from the Tsleil Waututh nation near southern Vancouver Island. Leonard Forsman, Suquamish Tribal Chairman, greeted families as they arrived during this beautiful sunny day.
This, my most recent painting for Gallery North in Edmonds, Washington. This watercolor which I call ‘Connections’, will be in their Small Works Show during March with an art walk on Thursday March 15, 5-8pm. See you there! Edmonds is a super cute town with some great restaurants like Chantrelles which I highly recommend.
So this, a striking image of Leonard welcoming two of many canoes during Canoe Journey 2016 in Suquamish, is coming to life on my work table this morning.
