Diablo Lake

This is a plein air sketch I did this summer, of a little inlet on Diablo lake.
My camp was just to the right in this beautiful forest
in the North Cascades Nat. Park, WA.
The lake is used by a lot of kayakers and canoeists.
It is a lovely opaque turquoise blue
caused by the grit brought down from the mts.
by the glacial runoff.

Fishing on the Clackamas River

I live near the Clackamas River and often see fishermen
in drift boats or standing in waders in the cold river.
Frequently the weather is gray and rainy
as it was this day, when I spotted a guy
totally caught up in his sport,
while his dog watched the fish jumping behind him.

Now Can We Go South?

A Cardinal pair in a Star Pine tree as winter approaches.
Besides making wonderful gifts,
small paintings like this, make a lovely addition
to your winter decor or holiday season.

November's Bounty

When traveling through the countryside of Washington state,
I frequently came across tables, baskets and boxes
of various types of produce set out at the entrance of the farm drive.
An honor box and sign with the cost were provided
so that passers-by could stop and make a purchase.
