My Safari easel is a bit cumbersome and heavy but once I set it up it’s sturdy, but it was SO nice to paint outdoors for a change. A friend and I walked to the very end of the Stillaguamish River, through mud puddles and over driftwood (which I painted) and set up a picnic. The wind picked up and it finally got to chilly and we returned shortly after sundown.

Three women enjoying an afternoon on a dock on a lake. A memory of last summer and Gauguin’s Tahitian work, especially the painting, ‘Fatata Te Miti’, 1892, inspired this piece.
This bird is known as Aas Gutu Yatx’i” or ‘child of the bushes or forest’ in Tlingit – and is one of my favorites because they are fluffy and, although wild, very outgoing. They are found high alpine and in older forests.

At The Precise Moment that Franz Schubert Heard The First Notes To His Next Composition– I go back to this painting often. It’s over 10 years old now! It always makes me happy when I look at it.

Hoping to complete 3 more still lifes by the end of 2015.
Still lives are calling me again. I assembled this painting by quickly and randomly sweeping my kitchen for objects.
Going to eat these tonight!
