The Skagit Valley

October in the Skagit Valley 
30x40 inches

" It's a landscape in a minor key. A sketchy panorama where objects both organic and inorganic lack well defined edges and tend to  melt together in a silver green blur. Great islands if craggy rock arch abruptly up out of the flats and at sunrise and moonrise these outcroppings are frequently tangled in mist. Eagles nest on the island crowns and blue herons flap through the veils from slough to slough. It's a poetic setting, one which suggests inner meanings and invisible connections."

Another Roadside Attraction 
1971 Tom Robbins
