Abstract Landscape

7"x 5" Not Available
Oil on Canvas Board
I wanted to use brighter colors and simple shapes in the small abstract of the bluff painting I did. It was fun to paint, very satisfying. I plan to do more abstract landscapes in the future.

Bluff at Anchor Point

10"x 8" Not Available
Oil on Canvas Board
I painted this view of the bluff which is on the Anchor Point beach on the Cook Inlet. My husband and I were filling up several buckets with gravel to put in the pot holes of our driveway in Anchor Point. We love to take a drive down the beach in our 4-wheel drive pickup where we beach comb for coal, driftwood, gravel, and wonderful photos.

I miss my Texas painting buddies, Sheri and Terri, so I did this small painting from a photo I had taken while we were all out painting near Bluff Dale, Texas. I am still in Alaska and will be till the first of October. The Fall colors are showing up and I am ready to capture them.

Beach Grass and Spruce Trees

Oil on Canvas
One of the most enjoyable activities for me in Alaska is the mile trip from our cabin to the Anchor Point beach located on the Cook Inlet. The trees and grasses take on special beauty when seen from a walk on the beach.

This is the view of the Anchor River wetlands looking towards the Cook Inlet.
I love the Fall smells and sights in Alaska. They stimulate my desire to paint.

Harebell Wildflowers

7"x 5" Not Available
Oil on Panel
After three months in a remote fishcamp where my husband does commercial salmon setnetting, I am back in Anchor Pt and back on the "grid". I love the Spruce trees and the wildflowers here in Alaska. We spend the month of May and September here in Anchor Point in our small cabin where I love to spend time painting.
