Due to the surprisingly good May weather here in the Pacific Northwest, I have spent several days on the beach at Deception Pass State Park. This is one of my favorite places here on Whidbey Island and to be able to spend time their painting in warm sunny weather is a real treat. This piece is a from a view directly across the channel leading to the Deception Pass bridge. It is a small island that has narrowly been eroded away from Fidalgo Island and its virtually vertical sides are painted with a variety of subtle colors. The piece is 9 x 12 inches.
