Vashon Island, off Puget Sound has been stripped to its visual essentials in this lovely collection of watercolors by Kanenson. The topog­raphy is rugged with tough pines sur­viving somehow on sixty-degree slopes interlarded with giant boulders. Kanen­son has managed to capture the harsh enduring quality of the rocks, trees, wa­ter and sky with abrupt, intense water­color washes which manage to convey the feeling of place magnificently.
