I have painted quite a few seascapes, I live on the edge of the Salish Sea so the first thing I see when I get up is the ocean. Lighthouses interest me and of course boats of all kinds, I think I could paint water for the rest of my life and never tire of it. I also like to paint landscapes, especially mountains of which there are plenty around here. The magnificent Mount Denman is a delicious subject, I have painted it 3 times and will probably paint it again and again. Last week I painted the last in a series of 3 prarie paintings, I love how the Rockies suddenly appear and knowing I am almost home! I love the patchwork fields and the fantastic yellow fields of canola flowers, natures cadmium yellow feast! Oh and did I mention the vastness of the prarie sky, blue and blue and billowing, pillowy clouds, I could stare at it all day if I had all day to stare!
