PNW / 2019-2020

I relocated my studio to Seattle, Washington in 2018. I have been fortunate to have lived/worked in a few cities over my career. I have found that the PNW is a great fit for the type of life I wish to lead at this time.

This painting on canvas was inspired by my recent move to the Pacific Northwest. The painting features a alien spacecraft that has appeared in the night sky. The spaceship has fired a beam to the Earth, catching the unofficial mascot of the Pacific NorthWest – Sasquatch. The composition is filled with tall evergreens in their natural abundance. Sasquatch is in the process of observing / planting a new tree in the foreground while a drone keeps a remote eye on the situation from the top left corner of the composition. The canvas work is 24×30 inches, created in mixed media.
