Pages from my sketchbook made along the Pacific coast.
Our Lady of Good Voyage Chapel, Roche Harbor, San Juan Island

Morning at Yaquina Head Light--Oregon

Yaquina Head Light from the Beach--Oregon

Studies done on scraps of paper in preparation for a larger painting

Trying to get the feel of fog at the lighthouse

They turned out nice enough that I put them in 8x10 matts
I may list them for sale in my online Etsy Shop
along with the final paintings.

You do such lovely work.

Oh I knew these were coming and I must say they are wonderful as always. Oh the west coast makes me want to hop a train.
You are so darn talented. B

My favorites are of the light house. You do beautiful work!

Nice work! The lighthouses are my favorite, but the chapel is beautiful, too!

I bet you have some wonderful sketchbooks Leenie - thanks for sharing these pages,- would love to see more.

Leenie, what beautiful sketches! That's exactly what I'd like to do when I travel. I have the equipment, I just don't have the talent. Or the motivation. I take pictures and think that will give me reference material, but it never works that way. Oh well, I am soooo loving the two pieces I bought from you.

These are very good!
I can barely draw a straight line.

You ever draw cats?

Liza Bean Bitey (of the Minneapolis Biteys) want to know.



p.s. Still haven't framed the raven I got from you! It is, however, prominently displayed! I love it.

I have such a crush on the PNW. Your artwork captures it perfectly!
