Bishop Byway 9 x 12 oil on canvas panel SOLD Today’s painting is a rural scene from Bishop, California, focusing on the beauty of fall in this eastern Sierra community.

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

“Arroyo Seco Trail” 9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas SOLD (commission) I like to paint new things, as a rule, because it’s fun to interpret new subject matter and challenge myself – but from time to time I get a request from a client to paint a new version of a previous painting. In [...]
