Richardson Bay (Mill Valley, CA)

(5" x 9" Gouche on Watercolor board)

Spent the afternoon driving passed Mill Valley and taking the same exit towards Stinson Beach. Met up with fellow plein air painters to paint along the Richardson Bay. Decided to include some passerby's.... on kayaks!!!

Skillet Diner on Capitol Hill

 Had breakfast with my husband at Skillet Diner on Union Street.  Very nice breakfast.  This is a semi-blind contour drawing with a little watercolor, done while we were waiting, maybe ten minutes.

singing in the rain

Treetops 2, oil on copper, 6" x 4"

Couple weeks ago I went out for the first time with a Seattle Co-Arts' plein air posse. Before the rain began pouring at Magnuson Park I began this little oil sketch on copper, only 6 inches tall!
