Finally! We’re at the beach!

One of my favorite things about summer is the chance to live at the Oregon Coast in our sweet small log cabin in Manzanita.

I have a yurt studio there.

It’s on a platform so the window level is above the old growth Huckleberries and it’s four windows all have a forest view of the Sitka forest we are surrounded by.

The huge round skylight gives off the most beautiful reflected even light.

It’s hard to do a bad painting in a rounded room where there’s no chance for energy to get stuck.

For my first group of paintings I’ve decided to lay down watercolors first, allowing a good bit of chance to dictate the compositions that will follow.
