Santa Fe


Santa Nina
Today I'm packing my bags.  Tomorrow I leave for Santa Fe.  I'll be house sitting for a friend who lives in the wonderful Land of Enchantment.  Enchanting yes, so different from here in the Pacific Northwest.  I love the adobe homes, the blue sky, the food, and yes, all the art galleries.  This painting titled "Santa Nina" is an older piece from my saint series.  It's interesting, but every time I am in Santa Fe I feel like painting big again.  The open spaces and wild west feeling might have something to do with that.

I just got back from the Land of Enchantment / Ghost Ranch! Are you going to do some landscape painting there? Have fun and bring the sun back :)

Have a great time. That place oozes art and good juju! Love this painting. I know I am totally flattering myself but it kinda looks like me. ;-)

For Arlington Billboard


Into the Valley
The Arlington Downtown business Association commissioned me to create this painting for their collection and they plan on using it for a billboard that leads off of I-5 into Arlington.  They want to attract visitors to their wonderful little town and the Stillaguamish Valley.  It will be interesting to see how it looks enlarged like that and if anyone notices?   I like to look at billboards so I suppose other people do too...
