I've been adding branches and gold leaf to my resin art... find 2 of these little cuties at the Andersonville Galleria in Chicago
Work in Progress
Currently 2 layers of paint and 3 layers of resin - one more of each and it'll be finished!
Camouflage in nature
Growing up in Alaska, you learn to quickly spot the camouflaged in nature, whether it's a moose in the brush, salmon in the stream, or edibles in the thick brush. I've been playing with this a bit, starting with an acrylic pour, adding the camouflaged nature, and topping with a splash resin finish for the wet look that has become a favorite of mine. Here are new pieces now available at Mythos Gallery or online at Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TMDerrickson
Salmon Run, 22x14 acrylic & resin diptych on wood panel
Salmon Run detail (did you spot them first in the above full diptych?)
Comical in Nature
Because sometimes you just have to paint what makes you giggle... :)

Birthday hiking weekend!
Oh, St. Johns...
A little spring walk
I don't know if it is Portland, St. Johns, or if it is the stay at home order, but even a short walk around the block (with a mask of course), brings encounters with the loveliest people out on their porches, just saying hi, giving their best wishes... it seems like all are up for an across-the-lawn chat. Sometimes on these walks I feel like I live in Mayberry...

"…Every day I discover even more beautiful things. It is intoxicating me, and I want to paint it all…
my head is bursting."
