North Cascades -- Progress Report, 12 August

Adding a splash of color... 

This week's tally -- 79 works on paper, 20 oil paintings on panels, 130 photos, and 12 videos. I got a little more wrapped up with the works on paper than I had in mind at the time of my last update. So, I have yet to get back to the oil paintings. But I'm getting steadily closer to project completion. (Yea!)

...to some of the botanicals...

Anyway, I should finish up the current round of works on paper this week and be able to return to oil paints ("Yea!" again) by week's end. After that it's just a matter of proof reading (I'll get 2 or 3 other folks to do this with me to gain fresh perspective.) and then it's Submission Time. (Really big "Yea!")

...and one of the "cultural artifacts" I found in the woods

If all goes well you can expect the release of the free excerpt around the end of August. (Stay tuned for more details.)

With more windows (or maybe a hinged roof) this might make a cozy little studio.



  1. I like your 'cozy little studio'. Maybe a roof of transparent/translucant material?
    I hope to hear about the free excerpt (I love gifts!)

    1. Hi Inge. I'll be posting info regarding the new book excerpt as soon as it's available. In the meantime you might enjoy these books. (The first book is completely free and the other two have free excerpts.)
