Plein Air Painting From Cannon Beach

What summer was that?

It seems as if it was yesterday that I was packing up my bags and art supplies to teach a June workshop in Cannon Beach, Oregon, just two hours from Portland.

I'll spare you most of the gory details, but in the middle of my workshop, I had a silly argument with an exacto knife, finished the workshop, flew home to Denver to have my tendon and nerve reattached at University of Colorado Health Sciences center, and have been re-cooperating and doing physical therapy ever since.

Above is one plein air painting from that trip, still wet from it's finishing touches done in the studio. It's a 12" x 16" acrylic of the coastal rocks as seen from the cliffs of Ecola State Park. More to come.
