Wilson’s Warbler Study

Wilsons-Warbler

This painting is still available as of Tuesday, August 26 at 8am PDT. Email me if you’re interested.

We have a little pond, an important water source this time of year for all sorts of wildlife – squirrels, deer, probably bear and bobcat, our local cougar – and these little summer warblers tend to hang there too. This male was flitting around near the little waterfall I contrived to make the water unstable for mosquitoes, and watched him as he got himself soaked with a misstep. I thought it a might be a nice painting (before he got soaked).

Winter Wren Study

Winter-Wren

 This painting was sold before it hit the blog, but I wanted to post it anyway.

Saw this little guy in the broken fir right out the studio window. I love these little birds with their cocked short tails and big heads, a sizzling voice that just goes on and on, like a kettle on the stove but more musical. They defend their little forest area from all comers, even me if I get too close. I’ve had them actually jump on my boot, as if a bird that weighs less than an ounce can have some effect on an intrusive boot.

Royal Basin Trail – Into the Light

Royal-Basin---Into-the-Light

We recently hiked this glorious trail, and I always love to relive good times by painting them. Miles of old-growth forest in a mature western hemlock forest, trails going off in various directions to alpine places of glorious solitude, the sounds of the Dungeness River always in ear-shot. It’s a special place we go to often. So here’s a little painting expressing that. If I die tomorrow and walk into the Light, this is how I hope it will be.

Spotted Towhee Branch Study

Towhee-branch

I watch these birds each morning and noon, scrambling around on the big feeder just a few feet from our table. ‘Saucy’ would be a good towhee-adjective, active and constantly tail-flicking, they probably have to eat all the time just to keep up with it all.

Little Tarn – Bailey Range

 

Lillian-Tarn-2

We hiked along this slope, in and out of little groups of snow-stunted hemlock, and after awhile this stunning view appeared. The Bailey Range beyond, little tarn full of quiet reflecting water, alpine edge-of-the-forest where the mountain hemlocks group together to withstand some pretty harsh winters. Two big Cascade frogs sat in the water watching us, as if we might be frog-hunters, which we are certainly not. I posted another little alpine tarn painting on the last blog, and it’s found a home a very long way from Olympic National Park – and its new owner wishes differently. That painting touched something, so this one might do the same. Hands off, Yaming, let’s let someone else have a chance.

 

What I’m endlessly enjoying with these subalpine painting studies are the positions of the graphic elements, the snow-slimmed trees, the freeze-shattered boulders, little bits of water that are always arranged in flawless designs. I think I’m drawn here for another reason too, that of seeing a landscape unaltered in any way by us – an increasingly rare thing these days. These rock gardens look like a master gardener has been here, but the caretaker is Mother Nature, the only real master gardener.
