The Change of Season is upon us!

 With the change of season we celebrate the many signs of nature that define Autumn.

Here, in one of my latest paintings, I celebrate the return of the Chinook Salmon to their spawning grounds, an annual ritual here in the Pacific Northwest.

"Against all Odds"

Fresh Art from the Studio!

   Spring inspires my creative energies, I'm channeling those energies in the studio with new art works, painting new Mini Fly's and Cascading Waterfall pieces. 

Here are some sequential photos of the process I use in creating my abstract fly fishing fly's, in this case "Mini Fly's" which are 6" x 12" rough, painted on canvas panels with acrylics.

Composition painted texturally with modeling paste

The first process is painting the piece texturally, building up the impasto texture to a point were I like it with modeling paste.

Then I start to apply color in many applications, in this case a more wet on wet series of washes, transparent and building depth.

The first color


I let the paint dry between applications
