My drip painting was too wet to photograph earlier this afternoon while the sun was on my deck.
So the image of it I just took is toooooo blue from lack of sunlight. But up it goes. I put images up from my Drip Painting Show in Seattle a year ago. I'll take a picture of it in the sun tomorrow.

Today I'm posting one of my paintings that is showing at the Corridor Gallery in Seattle. The name of the Show is "State of Mind". Sunset Lovers oil, Framed 14x11
. The painting is one from my View from Blanchard series. It is the only one with people in the painting.

 I picked the painting “Sunset Lovers” for this show because it shows both my ability to capture a landscape and a mood.
I always find it a challenge to try and figure out what the jury really is wanting in the theme they pick for the show.

Sunset Lovers - 2012
