After life drawing today I drove to Blakely Harbor on Bainbridge Island and made this painting.

Bell tower at Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit, Vashon, WA


This is the new bell tower outside the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit in Vashon, WA.

Codfish Dock on Vashon Island


I made this watercolor under an umbrella, but just as I laid in some washes, some raindrops spattered on the paper and ruined the washes. I finished it up and took it home thinking it was a total loss. When I looked at it later, I kind of liked it and finished it up.

I made this painting for Julia Kay's Portrait Party from this photo.

Journal sketches

I always keep my journal with me and make sketches wherever I go. Here are a few of my recent ones.








Life drawing today

I always enjoy my life drawing group on Fridays, and today was no exception. There were nine artists today, about the most you can get in the room and still have a good view of the model. We've developed an easy relationship among us. While we're drawing, we're quiet as we concentrate on the work, but we always take a ten or fifteen minute break in the middle. We have a cup of tea and a snack and catch up on things. Sometimes some of us share some art work we've been doing. Friday's my favorite day of the week!

Point White Road


This house is along Point White Road on Bainbridge Island.

Delapidated house



This old delapidated house is being used for storage by a contractor. It's right next to spiffy Lynnwood Center, quite a contrast.

Starbucks guy


I thought this guy had an interesting face hunched over his laptop.
