"California Autumn Medley"

"California Autumn Medley" - Oil - 30" x 24" - SOLD

With foreground cottonwoods steeped in rich autumn colors, the coastal atmosphere veils distant mountains in soft light. This part of the autumn color season is brief and a delay or heavy wind can render an artist's subject a denuded skeleton.

"Santa Ynez Tree Line"

"Santa Ynez Tree Line" - Oil - 12" x 16" - SOLD

This was the last painting of my terrific southwest trip. The pattern of the trees and their rich color were worth the effort of standing in the wind and holding the easel down. The next morning, we heard about the San Diego county fires as we drove north toward home. It's sad to think about how that landscape has changed.

"Morning Light, Sedona"

"Morning Light Sedona" - Oil - 11" x 14" - $225

This was a wonderful morning of painting in Sedona's brilliant landscape. The delicate lavenders and greens of the shadows become lyrical against the sunlit hues.

"Afternoon at Arches"

"Afternoon at Arches" - Oil - 11" x 14" - $225

I carefully timed my painting session for this wonderful light as the evening sun lit the formations at Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. The wind wasn't as fierce as yesterday, but I still took shelter beside the car.
