Where eagles dive

Lopez Island is known as the most bucolic of the San Juan islands because of the rolling hills and calm bays. I’ll be painting here for the next few days but thought I’d warm up with a sketch in my panoramic sketchbook. I don’t use this book for much else besides panoramas or very vertical sketches like the one I did a few months ago of a sculpture at the museum in Ottawa. It’s too wide for street scenes but perfect for a wide-angle view of Mackaye Harbor.

    Hello, I’m new here. Found you thru the Whidbey Island Sketchers. Just wanted to say how much I love your artwork, and the wonderful lifestyle you follow, painting outside and bringing the beautiful landscapes and peoplescapes to our lives. Wonderful work!

    • You certainly live in a beautiful place. I hope to come back here again. There are endless locations for painting and sketching. I am very lucky to have had this opportunity.

  2. Beautiful. I haven’t been to Lopez for years. I’ll have to drive north walk on the ferry for a visit. Thanks for sharing the your lovely paintings of the Northwest!
