Breathing the Sea SOLD $2000 (18×36 oil painting, gallery wrap). each wave contributes breath for the soul.
abundance at marymere SOLD (8×10 oil on panel). peninsula waters gather and give life to the earth below.
Saratoga Gold SOLD (12×24 dry pastel). Outside my studio lies the Saratoga Passage; the waterway that lies between Whidbey and Camano islands. This passage is home to migrating Gray whales, provides food for the nearby nesting eagles and feeds my soul on a daily basis. To experience the nuances of this magnificent waterway on a daily basis is an absolute blessing.
A Cannon Welcome SOLD $2800 (36×36 oil on gallery wrap canvas). seagull songs and light-filled wave. a perfect welcome.
SOLD. Light Dance on the Saratoga $924 (11×14 oil on panel).
Stand Beside Her SOLD (24×18 dry pastel). It feels to me that I live in the most blessed place on earth. It doesn’t seem to matter what simple chore I am doing, I am surrounded by beauty. Lucky me, lucky, lucky me. This that renews my living belief that God is ever-present and blessings abound in every task.
Foam Dancing SOLD (16×20 dry pastel). Foam dancing on the water’s edge, the warm sand teasing toes, God’s light topping waves. Surely this is counted as a perfect day.
Sky Waves $SOLD (8×10 oil on panel). clouds abound
No Shoes Required SOLD (16×20 dry pastel). I kept wanting to take my shoes off when I was painting this seascape. This beach is at Ebey’s Landing on Whidbey Island (WA). It almost seems as if a clam will squirt or a crab will scurry by any second.
Breaking through the Storm SOLD (8 x 10 oil). Oregon’s rushing sea.
Waking Up SOLD (11×14 dry pastel). My daily blessing from God to wake to this view every morning and yet another blessing to exercise the gift He has given me. Art does not just show up in dreams, it is the result of heartfelt work and earnest prayers.
The Seventh Wave SOLD (16×20 dry pastel). Years continue to pass and still there are rumors among seagulls that every seventh wave is larger than the others. Folklore or fact? I don’t know for certain but I do know I am willing to spend hours of research (sitting on the beach) trying to find out if it is true.
Whidbey Wave SOLD (11×14 oil on linen panel). holding onto the light by brush.
Skagit Valley Sky Stories SOLD (12×24 dry pastel). where the trumpeter swans fill winter skies.
Melt Me to the Sea SOLD (11×14 dry pastel). Inspired by a trip to the Oregon coast, this scene made me think about life; the push and the pull, the art of balancing the calm and the turbulence. I used the differences and tension of nature as a theme throughout this piece. If something curved one way, I added something else that curved the opposite way. If a blade of grass stood upright, I added a downturned, reflective, piece. Where there was a hint of blue, I snuck in a hint of orange (its complimentary color).
In Perfect Rhythm SOLD (20×16 dry pastel). Walking this beach along the Oregon coast, I found solitude and comfort among the giant protective rocks that jet out along the sandy beaches. Between the rocks and the sound of the water swooshing onto the beach there is peace and plenty of room to ponder matters of the heart.
Fakkema Road SOLD (12×24 dry pastel). After a long day of driving to the big city, this is a welcomed sight. It is one of my favorite spots along Fakkema Road and we often drive by just as the sun is setting. It’s a pretty sure bet that once we drive past this spot, we’ll be home in about ten minutes.
Edge of Skagit SOLD (12×18 dry pastel). Serenity along the Skagit River can be found morning and night. She feeds so many.
A Calling of the Heart SOLD (20×16 dry pastel). Walking this beach along the Oregon coast, I found solitude and comfort among the giant protective rocks that jet out along the sandy beaches. Between the rocks and the sound of the water swooshing onto the beach there is peace and plenty of room to ponder matters of the heart.
City Beach Sunrise SOLD (16×20 dry pastel). It seems nearly every spot on beautiful Whidbey Island has views to offer and gorgeous sunrises and glistening waters. I just can’t seem to get enough of it! This scene is from an early morning adventure to City Beach in Oak Harbor.
Back to Morro SOLD (24×54 triptych. dry pastel). The only thing even remotely close to being there is this…painting this, standing in front of this, absorbing this. Every inch of this piece is filled with the excitement of the sea as I recalled standing on the shores along the coast of Morro, California, with my heart pounding faster and faster as each wave struck the rocks in front of me.
Liquid Light SOLD (14×11 dry pastel). along the shores of Morro Bay, CA, is a spot where the sea calls out with the thunder of the crashing waves and I wonder to whom she calls. are there ships beyond my sight? hearts beyond my reach that only she can see? will she call them back with gulls or send out sweet sparrows to guide them home?
And Five Makes Happy Hour SOLD (11×14 dry pastel) time to chat.
Backside of the Storm SOLD (16×20 dry pastel). This is a view of the Saratoga Passage on Whidbey Island after the storm passed through. Even though the waters are still churning, there is a calmness just around the bend. The sun shining through the clouds is a testament to that distant calmness.
Golden Trail SOLD (12×18 dry pastel). treasures along the water’s edge.
Rosario Sentinels SOLD (11×14 oil on panel). keeping guard, watching waves and whales; she grows toward her love.
