It's a beautiful day in Everett overlooking the Snohomish River from my window. We have lived here for over 40 years! I have painted this scene so many times because i love it. The river is my muse, kind of like Georgia O'Keefe and the Pedernal. I have painted this scene in the background of my first works and later it has become central to several paintings. I love changing up the colors, the bend, the trees but it is always the Snohomish River.
