18 x 24 oil painting on canvas
This painting is a larger studio version of a smaller study I did last year. I had been wanting to paint the same subject larger, and just needed the time to get around to it. This beautiful vineyard is on highway 46, in Paso Robles. At sunset the hills just glow. I can’t say for sure that these are sauvignon vines, but I liked the alliteration, so there it is.

“St. Francis of Assisi statue”
14 x 11 inches
Oil on canvas
At a recent visit to California Mission San Juan Bautista, I saw this small statue in the inner garden area and thought it would be interesting to paint. The late afternoon sunlight made the weathered granite glow. I don’t know how old the statue was, but it had certainly been softened by the elements.
