Inspired by William Keith

This week I was proud to put the finishing touches on a large-scale mural inspired by 19th century American landscape painter William Keith. Set in what is to shortly become the tasting room of No. 6 Cider on Elliott Ave W., Seattle, the mural measures 33′ x 13′. The landscape is altered to reflect the area in California where the business is located. Eventually a back bar will be installed centrally against the back wall to a height and width of about 6′ so only a small portion of the mural will get covered up.

It was a real treat to paint this. One of my favorite styles.


Christmas Commissions!

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are right around the corner again. If you’d like to order a commissioned piece of art this year, now’s the time to start the discussion! With about 8 weeks left it’s good to get the ideas and the paint flowing to allow enough time for drying and framing.

Whether you have a specific idea or not, I can help you figure out size/medium and cost and have your unique gift ready for you by Christmas morning.

Capitol Hill Restoration

Restoration work can be very rewarding. Taking something which has obviously been abused or neglected and successfully bringing it back to it’s original state feels very good. Below are some before/during and after shots of some old murals in the Sheffield Condominiums building on Capitol Hill in Seattle.

In the picture below you can see the patches left after all the loose paint was removed from this mural. Moisture damage had caused the adhesion of the paint to fail in some areas. The following shot shows the completed repairs.

The big “smudge” seen in the mural below is the result of a poorly executed repair from some point in the past. A little color adjustment took care of the problem.



The following mural was by far the most abused. Someone had actually punched three holes in the wall (obviously not a fan of English Landscape painting). After filling the holes, the plaster was textured using the tip of a brush to match the texture of the existing wall and then the details were repainted.

More than a “Pet” Portrait

Albert was a great friend and a great companion. He was loyal, never asked for more than his lot and gave nothing but unconditional love to his family. To my good friend in the UK, Albert was not a pet. He was a member of the family, and he is and will continue to be missed, achingly.

Here’s the painting I did of Albert for my friend. I’m honored to have had the opportunity.
