1301 'Justin' NFS

8" x 10" oil on Masonite
This is the last painting until sometime in January , Hubby is flying in to Seattle at 5 this evening, saw him last in the summer and then it's back to Ireland beginning of January.
Washington is a lovely State with picturesque mountains, lakes, rivers and lush country side, I will miss it and my family. Looking forward to life in Dublin and enjoying a bit of city life.
Hope you all have a very Happy Christmas and may the New Year bring us all prosperity and new beginnings.

1300 'On the Look Out'


9" x 12" oil on masonite

This Great Blue Heron that my daughter spied while out on a trip up Stevens Pass, she was taking photos of the river when she came across him standing on the edge among the river rocks with the fast flowing river behind him and the evergreen clad mountain blurred in the background.

After doing some research, I found some information on this beautiful bird :-

Description: The Great Blue Heron is the largest and most widespread heron in North America. It is a large bird, with a slate-gray body, chestnut and black accents, and very long legs and an "S"-shaped neck. Great Blue Herons are very tall and stand 38-54 inches (97-137 cm). In flight, the bird looks enormous, with a six-foot wingspan.

Kickin' Back SOLD!


Just got a nice surprise in the post, a cheque from the Six by Six Gallery in New York where I had sent this painting . They hadn't let me know that it had sold, so at first I thought that it was a bill! Well I am feeling like I've won the lottery and am really chuffed (as we say in England) here is the link to the Gallery.

9" x 12" oil on gessoed masonite, unframed 

Here is another painting of a Washington cow, this time larger and with the farm in the background. It was an idyllic autumn day when we met these placid creatures and the kind of day that makes you glad to be alive! beautiful sunshine and lovely fall colour everywhere.
