The Southworth ferry dock is seen from the west side of Vashon. This is a view looking north along Colvos Passage. In the summer the sun sets far to the north; the sky glows above Bainbridge Island. The lights of the ferry and the ferry dock are bright in the twilight. Painted from photographs I took on location. This painting will be showing at Dockton Pottery this weekend, stop #19 on the Vashon Island Art Studio Tour. The tour is the last two weekends in June, from 10 to 5 on the 18th, 19th, 25th and 26th.
Painted on the Washington coast in May after a morning of clam digging. The digging was over for the day, but chest- wader attired fishermen were standing in the surf casting for surf perch. It was a gray day so the colors were very harmonious. I used a cool gray for the sky and water, but the waves picked up the beach sand as they broke and turned a warm brown. On my ETSY store.
A view of the Copalis River on its path to the sea on the Washington coast. It was the last opening of spring clam tides and we parked next to a guy who was selling clam guns. His season was over so he was in a chatty mood. We both agreed this was a million dollar view.
