Waters of the Pacific


“Pacific Blues”


The Pacific Northwest.

Lots of rain, lots of rainbows.


This is my version, my  ‘twist’ of a remembered view.  The old home that overlooked the Olympic Mountains and the cool clear waters of the Hood Canal, just after a recent rain.

And then, the sun peeped out.

The Rainbow appeared.

Some are old.

Some are new.

Some are fresh to new viewers.



All have a different face to show us though, of water and how we can interpret it  in so many different ways.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at society6.com/debiriley and, redbubble.com/people/debijriley/shop

      1. its possible Cattie. it does depend on a few factors, which image is one. as some may have sold. some may be too small etc. some may be too big to shop cost effectively. I do have my art work and prints on Society 6.com they handle all shipping too. let me know which image. I could process the image and send the upload to them for them to enlarge onto canvas, etc. have a look at debiriley at Society 6 to see what is available also!! thanks alot!

        and I have close to about 30 est. art images there. So you pick which you like, and what product. canvas, clock, handbag, artprint, ipad cover, etc! and order it all from Them. I will be putting more images on the shop…. but after I’ve done a series of workshops here. a couple weeks! I do not know what payments they do – paypal, credit cards, the usual!!!! they do ship world wide though 🙂


      3. I can’t speak for them, but… I know they take Pay Pay!! 🙂 Cattie, did you go to their site, and look for that info on the FAQ page? they should, I believe, have a list of what types of payment options they take. Pay Pal is pretty global. pretty easy for most people to get! 🙂

      4. gosh, maybe so, but I could be wrong!! …It might be best, to just find out from them directly for all the billing, shipping, mailing, invoicing queries you have. I’m afraid I might you the wrong, answer for them!!
