The Haystack

The Haystack
18 x 24 oil on panel
I just finished working on this painting.  It was a challenge.  I struggled with the water for days.  At times I even felt like I ruined the painting. but I was determined to turn it around and I think I did a good job.
This is second one in my Cannon beach series.  I hope to paint a few more.  Its called the Haystack because that's the name of the huge rock which is in focus in this painting.  Its a home for an abundance of wild life.  And not to forget it is a major tourist attraction in the Pacific NW.

Thank you for your visit.  lets stay in touch on Facebook

Cannon Beach
18 x 24 oil on panel

Hello friends, I am glad this painting is finally off my easel.  This one has been a challenge.  It has transformed drastically form start to finish.  However, whatever be the challenge...I did enjoy every bit of it.  This is a view of the beach from Ecola State park.  
Thank you for visiting my blog...and hope to meet you guys on Facebook as well.

The Chickadee

12 x 12 oil on panel 

Hi everyone, This is fresh off my easel.  I don't have fancy vases, so i just used my toothbrush stand. :) .  I almost ruined this painting towards the finish.  I actually smudged wet paint from my hand on to the background.  I had to rework the entire background.  Thanks to oils.  Its such a forgiving medium, You can keep reworking as long as you are satisfied.  I'm sure if it was watercolors my painting would be ruined for sure.  Seriously thanks to oils.  I love this medium.  Hope you guys like my paintings.  Do follow me on Facebook if you find my work interesting.
