Waldport Cottage

8 x 10 inches, pencil on paper.
This little cottage was next door to the place Kay and I rented when her son Dan came out to Oregon for a 5-day visit in 2005. We had a great view of the ocean from a nice deck (with an outdoor fireplace).

For Dan the highlight of the trip was when we rented ATVs and did our small part to desecrate the coastal sand dunes near Florence.
I must admit that it was a lot of fun.

Path to the Beach

3.5 x 5 inches, oil on paper.
Hey everybody! I have clawed my way to the surface once again. It was a very busy summer. Work was hectic, and in August Kay and I moved to a nicer house here in Portland. We're on the verge of being settled enough to resume "normal" activities, such as painting. My studio is still just a pile of boxes in the basement, but soon, very soon, I'm going to put together the bare bones of a painting set-up. And paint something.

For now, here's an older painting from the Oregon coast. The blue band on the horizon is the ocean.
