Horseriders on the Beach

Just outside Bandon, Oregon, a little promontory of land juts out into the Pacific, creating two unique views of the coast, north and south.  Unusually shaped rocks and islands, amazing tidal pools, and a wealth of bird life make this

Seattle Skyline

This is one of those images I’ve wanted to paint for years now.  It’s the view from the ferry looking at Seattle’s skyline.  I finally was there with perfect light and color.  It wasn’t foggy, the wind wasn’t blowing 70
