I have been putting up images of the paintings that I have painted of the beautiful view from Blanchard Mountain. Each painting a little different from the next. This is where my husband of 39 year died two weeks ago.

These paintings of the view from Blanchard mountain look very similar to each other with subtle changes. I'm now working on emptying my husbands office up at the University. I really do hope to do paintings everyday again soon.

This is a large painting of the view from Blanchard Mountain. I made it by turning the canvas on it's side and dripping the thinned oil paint down the canvas.

Another view from Blanchard Mt. One of my husband's friends sent me a photo of him in his big orange paraglider wing over Blanchard Mountain on his last flight. It is beautiful. I will do a painting from the photo soon.

I have a number of painting of the view from Blanchard Mt. It is such a beautiful place. I'm not sure that I will be painting daily for a few days. We will see. I can't take care of business until I have my husband's death certificates.

This is an older painting. I didn't paint today because my sons and I and my husbands family went up to the Mountain were he die Wednesday. What a beautiful place to die. Later this week I will post some of my paintings of the view from that mountain top that I have painted. I don't think that I will get to do much painting This week.

I don't feel at all lonely. I feel surrounded by love and comfort and kindness.I saw my husband's body today dressed in his teaching outfit. He looked asleep. I cut a small lock of his hair. I'll have it placed in a locket and wear it next to my heart.

I painted this a little bit ago. One of my favorite Mother/Child paintings. Hope you like it. I enjoyed the 5 days of being down in Stanwood and Camano Island plein air paintings. I learned a lot and made new artist friends and got to know old friends better. I'll do it again next year.

I was going through my portrait images and realized that I had extra images of my paintings that I could put up for others to see. Next week I'll be off plein air painting down on Camano Island. So if I don't have the time to get those paintings up I'll put up more portraits.
