Just finished my demo at Daniel Smith (Seattle) and thought I might as well add a couple more walnut ink paintings to the pot.

So, Bellevue wasn’t scary at all…I didn’t faint, forget my name, or make too big a mess of things and, beyond all expectations, I had an absolutely grand time. Here are the three pieces that I did during the demo…unfortunately I paint just slightly faster than cold molasses, so I had to finish them in the studio. These are small paintings, all quarter sheets of watercolor paper.
