Technorati Profile PacificNorthwestPaintings: "Northwest Currents" 18 x 24 Oil on Canvas


"Northwest Currents" 18 x 24 Oil on Canvas

This is what I *often* see of my Northwest when I venture off to the beaches here. The clouds in the skies are grays with hints of blues and teeny splotches that lean towards purples spilling through what everyone calls 'gray'. The deep greens of the water - and depending on the time of day, can vary from a warm to a cool green. The reason I am told, is that we have much more flora growing in the water than further south. Must be true, because our water definitely smells more *oceany* than in California. That's the smell that everyone assumes is a fish smell, but it's not - it's decaying flora. This piece was shown in the Edmonds Art Walk for June and is being entered in a show having to do with the Northwest. If you have questions about this work, please email me here.

Thanks, Patty and Joyce! The Northwest is so full of beautiful scenery that it's often hard to decide which to paint first.
