Thank you!


What a fantastic turn out at the opening of my two-person show with Thomas McDonald during Bend's First Friday Art Walk! Hands-down it was the most enthusiastic and energetic art event I've had the pleasure of attending! Many thanks to Ken Roth of Peterson Roth Gallery and to all the art lovers in Bend!

While out west, Jonathan and I also made time to fish and explore in both new locations (Upper Owens River in the Eastern Sierras, below right) and old favorites (Steelhead Falls on the Deschutes River, below left).



In two weeks we say goodbye to Bend, Oregon and point our car due east, Maine-ward. It's been just ten short months but we came, we saw, and we adventured. Boy-oh-boy did we adventure -- and boy-oh-boy do I have a lot of paintings to make so you can see all about it!

In the meantime, enjoy these few small glimpses at the beauty we've experienced here in Central Oregon. Pictured: Alder Springs, the McKenzie River, Waldo Lake, Steens Mountain, the Little North Fork of the Santiam River, Bend's whitewater park, Smith Rock State Park, Devil's Lake, the Blue Pool, Farewell Bend Park, fishing the Deschutes River, Opal Pool, the Metolius River, Steelhead Falls, Crystal Crane Hot Springs, Smith Rock again, and Farewell Bend Park. 

Farewell, Bend. For now...
