Artists

The gallery features works by a variety of artists, many local and some from far-flung regions. We started with art by family and friends, and the network is expanding.

At left is one of the new 'Symmetry' series now on view at the Gallery@RoadsEnd.

Paul’s abstract paintings and drawings evoke landscapes, aerial photographs, or views through the microscope. The works feature dynamic composition, textures, detail, and a painterly handling of the materials. Paul brings a common sensibility and technical approach to works in pen-and-ink, watercolor on paper, acrylic on panel, and digital painting, often blurring the distinctions between media. Yet, each medium is used to distinctive advantage. These images do not yield a quick surface reading or narrative. Return viewings yield new discoveries and delights.

Paul is also showing new Paintings at Lummi Island Gallery.

Living Landscapes at Dollhouse scale.

Somewhere on a forested island in the Salish Sea, a little world is blooming...

I first discovered miniature gardening when I wanted to do something interesting with my deck pots. My rule is that all the plants are living and appear as correctly scaled as possible. This is not bonsai, although the pots tend to constrict tree growth.

These tiny worlds are great for a deck if yard space is not available or when hungry deer come munching. Pots can be connected into a larger scene, or stand alone as a vignette. And if you move, they come with you!

Some of my plants are up to eight years old now. I always plant perennials. There are so many plants with little leaves, flowers, and even fruit. Strangely the only pests I have are in perfect scale: miniscule snails and slugs - it's hard to hate them.
