The Last Best Place

I worked with another long proportion in this latest painting. It's from Belize, where my memories are of intense blues of every description. I've included detail shots below.

View From Sunrise

View From Sunrise     oil on linen panel       10" x 8"

One of the many beautiful drives through Mt. Rainier Park take you to the Sunrise Visitor Center and more great views and paths to walk. While we had some rain and fog in the morning, everything cleared up so that you could see many of the peaks along the mountain range. I have continued to do a value block in on my paintings recently and then use more accurate color over that.

View From Paradise

View From Paradise     oil on linen panel       8" x 10"

We spent the Fourth of July at beautiful Mt. Rainier. There are gorgeous views at every turn, some being grand and others subtle and quiet. This is the view from Paradise Inn, where we stayed I highly recommend it, if you ever have a chance to visit. The historic inn, built in 1916, is a real treat and retreat. The scenery was very inspiring and I'm planning to paint others from the trip soon.
