My Summer Catch of Watercolors

In spite of being smack in the middle of prime salmon and halibut fishing grounds, I don't really care to go fishing much unless the sun is out and the water calm.  I'd rather leave foul weather fishing to the experts in my family while I stay dry at the cabin and paint all day.  Fortunately, that usually gives me quite a few long, relaxing days to paint and come up with a good catch of new paintings:

My new paintings from around Excursion Inlet:

And, of course, I must paint flowers to be happy:





Many of these pantings will be included in my October show at the Fairbanks Community Museum.  I'll post more details about the show soon, so please check back.
