“This painting is based on a photo I took from the ferry crossing between Seattle and my home on Bainbridge Island. Gray can be overwhelming here in the winter months but I’ve come to appreciate the many shades of gray found in the Pacific Northwest as seen in the green, gold, lavender and blue tones in this piece.” – Kelly Johnston
