The Great Northwest

I spent several weeks traveling, taking a five day color class with Hollis Chatelain (more about this in a later blog), and visiting my brother and sister-in-law in the great Northwest.  I had the opportunity and pleasure to meet many people and to reconnect with old friends.

While in Oysterville Washinton, I met a generational family of oyster growers.  Their love and dedication to keeping the bay safe for oyster growth is inspiring. A documentary film describing the Oyster Industry on Willapa Bay, Washington is worth viewing.

Water surrounds and seems to be an essential part of the landscape visually as well as in the hearts of the people who make their living from the land, the sea and the bay.

We hiked and explored Point Disappointment and two light houses.  The weathered structures were great to photograph ~ patterns and shadows of light.
