On The High Note

On The High Note 19 Final alternate

“On The High Note”  depicts the sweeping views toward Lake Cheakamus from Whistler Mountain, British Columbia. The soaring mountains and  alpine meadows cradle the glacier fed lake as if a hand full of precious turquoise had been cast into the landscape.  This painting is executed on an 18″ X 24″ archival Masonite panel with a linen overlay. The panel has a 2″ birch cradle with a natural, hand rubbed finish, which serves as a contemporary frame. To purchase this painting, please visit my website at “www.theartistsjourney.com”

Liquid Copper

The riverside walk in Leavenworth skirts the edges of the  Wenatchee River. We find quiet pools, bridges, glimpses of the surrounding mountains, and most of all the lovely reflections in the liquid landscape of the water. As we explore Blackbird Island, the autumn colors range from deep rusty reds to brilliant cadmium yellows, interspersed with dark greens and blues. It feels like liquid copper and gold have been poured over nature’s tapestry.

Cascade Gold

Continuing my autumn series, “Cascade Gold” represents being drawn into the glowing forests to explore. A walker’s pace lets us discover hidden treasures along a multitude of pathways. The wind whispering in the trees and the water moving through the valley create a soft, soothing music.

Mt. Index in Fall

The second painting in my autumn series represents the rugged, nearly vertical face of Mt. Index.  Glimpses of this stunning part of the Cascade Mountains flicker in and out of view as we climb toward Stevens Pass. Walking the trails and ridge lines near Mt. Index is a breathtaking experience right here in our own backyard!

The Perils of Plein Aire Painting

20190903_09235920190903_092411

I grabbed my easel and rushed out the door to meet Nadia at the Volunteer Park Dahlia Gardens in Seattle again this morning. I was set up to paint by 8:30, when I realized that I had forgotten my palette with all of my paints in it. Duh! Making due, I had an even more limited palette of colors today, because I “borrowed” a tiny dab of red, yellow, blue, orange, green, violet, and white that Nadia had already mixed up. She had used pthalo blue to mix the green, which is what gives the pretty turquoise colors. I completed my one panel and was packed up in exactly 1 hour. It was such a good exercise and nice morning in the sunshine. It feels as if fall has arrived, but I am savoring the time outside.
