Orcas Island

Artist Statement:
I have been painting professionally for 26 years.  I translate the natural beauty of Orcas Island onto canvas, or paper in the mediums of oil, watercolor or Sumi ink.  In this in painting, with Chinese watercolor, I explored the use of rough paper, instead of the traditional rice paper, to capture the essence of this tree.
