14" x 11" Oil on mounted linen.
This painting is from the current Different Strokes challenge. It is some prime Pennsylvania farmland. The image was black and white so all of the color here is imagined. The original is here.

16" x 20" Oil on panel.
The Space Needle is THE symbol of Seattle. It always grabs my attention when we are near downtown. This is the view from Tom's house one evening. I love those special nights when they fly the restaurant around the city. It is spectacular as it zips around the skyline and the sound. I wish I could afford the tickets for one of those nights; they come dear.
I painted this from a reference shot of it coming back in for a landing.

In a private collection,
Ferries ply some beautiful waters in the Puget Sound. The mountains of the Olympic peninsula give a hazy backdrop to this ferry moving toward Bremerton and the sunset. This sky is just barely exaggerated from the kind of stunning sunsets we can sometimes get here.

I had been working on(struggling with) another cityscape of Seattle. Thank goodness the Different Strokes challenge gets me to post on a schedule. This is another of Karin's reference shots from New York City.
