Sierra Nevada Oil Painting – Sierra Blush – Bishop California Sunrise Oil Painting

March 22nd, 2010

Sierra Blush, (Autumn morning near Bishop, California)
12 x 24 inches
Oil on Canvas

(Commission – sold)

This is my latest Sierra Nevada painting, painted on commission for a lovely young woman who lives in Ohio and whose brother is a guide in the Sierra. It has been so much of a pleasure to get to know her through the painting process, knowing that the painting will be a part of her family for many years to come.

The location is near Bishop, California, in late October, after the first light snow of the season.We got up very early to observe this scene (like 5:30 am) and it was worth it. The alpenglow light on the snow was heavenly. I could hardly wait to paint it. I know that I will be painting scenes like this again, most likely in a larger size. I think the panorama format really works for this type of a landscape.

Although this painting is sold, if you’d be interested in owning a painting of the Sierra Nevada,
please write

  1. This is a wonderful painting. I’m sure she and her family are going to treasure it.

  3. Don’t you just love the long format paintings???

    Was that something she asked for or was it your suggestion???

  4. Marian, she was interested in the Sierra and this was something I had been wanting to paint.
