Image of the Day

. Wesley Conrad Wehr: Winter Sea (Neah Bay), 2002
(Oil on mat board or card stock)

The digital image above does not approach the beauty of the actual painting, which is just over 3x3 inches in size – but I'm posting it as a reminder to go see
What Once Was: Picturing the Pacific Northwest at the Henry Art Gallery between now and the end of the month when it closes. The exhibition of historic Northwest photographs and paintings are presented in conjunction with Eirik Johnson’s photographic series, Sawdust Mountain, also up through the end of the month. The Henry is on fire right now – so many good shows.

More about Wesley Conrad Wehr (1929–2004) in a 2003
interview by Regina Hackett, and in Wehr's obituary, also by Regina Hackett, at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. (Hackett's current work can be found at Another Bouncing Ball.)
