Sierra Joy – June Lake Loop – California Sierra oil painting

February 18th, 2010

“Sierra Joy”
June Lake Loop area, near Rush Creek, featuring Carson Peak
20 x 24 inches oil on canvas
SOLD to a collector from Walnut Creek, CA

This one is sold, but you can see more Sierra Nevada paintings here

This is the next in my continuing series of paintings of the eastern Sierra, a studio painting based on plein air reference of a beautiful spot on the June Lake Loop, off of Highway 395. Aspens and rabbitbrush provided the warm color notes against the blue violet of Carson Peak. This location is not far from Grant Lake and Silver Lake if that helps in defining the locale.

I have spent so much time recently painting smaller paintings for shows, it feels good to stretch out and paint larger. For those of you who have been asking when I’m going to paint more large works, yes, they’re on the way.

  1. A total joy, indeed, Karen. Beautiful mountains and sky. And I love the yellow. That’s Rabbit Brush?

  5. Simply beautiful! Makes me want to go there and lay on my back in that field and just absorb the view, feel sun on my face and the listen to the breeze rustle the bushes. Wow. This one is a stunner!

  6. This is gorgeous! I haven’t been to the mountains in such a long time, but this painting evokes many of the same feelings I have when I’m there. nancy
