The Cupola

One of the many, many things I enjoy about painting is focusing intently on a scene and really seeing and appreciating it. The more I drew this, the more it wowed me. What a great way to spend an afternoon.

Sunset on Nye Beach

On a recent trip to the Oregon coast, this sunset vista greeted us from our beachfront balcony. The awe inspiring scene looked like an impressionistic painting so I attempted to paint it as such, using casein. I haven't used casein before but it was the perfect medium for this and I can't wait to paint more with it.

Common Murre in Its Winter Clothes

I painted this the day after the recent election, when I needed to stop thinking for a bit. In my case, painting can soothe the savage beast. Thank goodness.
