Before the Flood

















Finally back in the studio after
7 months. Need to refresh and
search for a new direction.
It may take a while to get
back. Here is a rough beginning.

It feels strange to actually post something.
It's been forever. Thanks as always Deb.
Nice to hear from you and I hope
all is well. Glad I didn't have to rattle
your chain.

YAY!!! The little painting Trolls have released you and you're finally out from under the bridge! YAAAAYY!!! Just before the flood... Wow,what a beautiful view that is! Welcome back, dude; we've missed you!

Thanks Sam,

I finally freed myself from those evil
rascals. Feels good. Thanks for your
comments about this painting. It started one
way and ended another. Guess that's OK.
Dam Bridge.

Thanks, interesting this reference was taken on a very gray day a couple of years ago. We were with friends and were heading up to see Mt. Rainier. These colors turned out brighter than I thought they would. That would be your influence coming through B!

Oooooops, forgot to say I was in Washington, staying in Tacoma.

Nice to be back

Whoa! I'd say it's been worth waiting for the trolls to come out. As I scrolled down to this painting I thought, lively loose brushwork and great sense of distance in these paintings. I think you're on to something.
