I Can Smell It, But Can I Sketch It?


Garibaldi Harbor, Oregon Coast

Ever since I returned from the Oregon coast a couple of months ago, (where did the time go?) I have been thinking about harbors, boats, the smells of the seafood cafes and fish markets. Maybe having just watched The Perfect Storm for the third time also has made an impact on checking out harbor life.


Under the Carquinez Bridge, Crockett, CA

So I meandered to Suisun harbor and then onto Crockett to a place I had actually painted this past summer. I had no intention of setting up an easel, just trying to capture the vulnerability of man and land against the sea.
