|Pacific Shore - 5x7 - Oil on Linen Panel|
Does it have the big distinctive rocks of Cannon Beach? No. Does it have the sunny warm days of a California beach? No. Are there dead crabs and jellyfish everywhere? Yes. But if there's any stretch of beach that feels like home it would be the Long Beach Peninsula in southwestern Washington. My family has been having annual reunions there for longer than I've been alive; from all corners of the Northwest and beyond we take over the small town of Ocean Park, Washington. My husband and I enjoy the good company AND overcast relief from Eastern Washington summers! I love the challenge of painting the ocean every year, it's such a huge change of subject matter!

|Heat of the Day - Oil on Linen Panel - 5x7|
I had a fantastic day out painting with a couple other painters today, we braved the outdoors despite predictions of temperatures in the 100s. Definitely worth it!

|Cottonwoods at Dusk - 4x6 - Oil on Linen Panel|
While passing through the little eastern Oregon town of Pilot Rock I was able to snap a picture of the moon rising near a grove of cottonwoods. I knew I would want to paint the beautiful dusk glow when I got home!
