Once a year I hang my show at the Braeburn Restaurant in Langley, Washington. Today is the day. I will be hanging it after hours, so tomorrow will be the first day that you will have the opportunity to see it.
In the past I have featured, trucks, barns, old gas stations, larger-than-life food items (peanut butter sandwiches 18 tall), crows and this year the feature is birds.
When my show was taken down last year, I started thinking about what I would show for 2018. I decided to do local birds. These paintings are in watercolor, not my usual medium, which is oil. The really unusual thing about the paintings is they are not painted on paper, but on treated panels of medium density fibreboard (MDF). Another unusual thing about them is that they are loosely painted, not the usual photorealism of my oil paintings. This makes them more spontaneous and whimsical than my usual works.
There are twenty-five birds, a few dogs, and, yes, some trucks! I would hope that you could visit the show sometime between July 14 and August 31. You may purchase any of the paintings and take them with you, which is nice if you are from out of town.
The Braeburn Restaurant is located at 197 D. 2nd St. Langley, WA 98260. They serve breakfast and lunch.
Their phone number is 360-321-3211. https://braeburnlangley.com/
