Latitude 47 N and 122 W longitude is Seattle, Washington where I have been fortunate enough to live for more than 30 years. Seattle and Washington state have everything an artist could wish for – forests, mountains, lakes, rivers, canals, Puget Sound, the ocean, prairie, vineyards, wildlife… An endless array of landscape and people and animals and weather to exemplify on canvas.
My original love was watercolor many years ago. Life threw some curve balls and painting was put ‘on the back burner’ for awhile (I started my own business as a website design/developer – Bluepoint Enterprises – from which I have recently retired) but the desire was always there. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to get back to it but decided to try acrylic painting instead and was hooked. I have been studying under internationally accomplished artist, Beverly Hooks, an impressionist painter. My own style is still evolving.
I paint subjects that inspire me, primarily landscape. I am also captivated by horses and dance and the sea – but, really, any subject that creates a spark in me. Like many artists, I am drawn to the light which makes a painting come alive. And I am still learning…
If you see something you like, I’d love to hear from you.
