Back in the USA!

When the wind blows hard, it whistles past antennae, around canvas, through window screens, against rigging, and creates a weird symphony of sounds. It was to this accompaniment, I painted the water of Roche Harbor toward Speiden Channel.

I am nearly out of Wallis paper, the perfect support for a dispersion under painting with pastel on top. Lots of tooth in the paper to take as much as I could throw on it.

It is so good to be back in Washington!

oh well, almost out of paper--time to come back for sure! Nice painting--love the aqua

As we were leaving Roche Harbor a week ago today, we were blessed to see a pod of 10-15 Orcas. Hope you are as lucky.

Casey Klahn said...

Unmistakably Washington waters: you captured that, here.

Out of Wallis - that's bad. Out of coffee? That's deadlined.

Katherine van Schoonhoven said...

Time to get home, that's for sure! It will be good to see you, Celeste.

Hi Nancy! We've seen lots of humpbacks, but maybe here in the islands we'll see more orca. Thanks for the comment.

Casey! Coffee in good supply!! Have fun down south.

Welcome Home! I agree with Casey's comment on the coffee, but glad to hear you're well stocked.
Great painting with action in all those waves.
