Gold Rush Country Ranch
20 x 24 inches
oil on canvas
This new painting depicts a ranch on highway 49, not far from Murphys, California. There was something about the sculptural mass of the big oak tree that really spoke to me. Although I most commonly paint eucalyptus, I find live oak trees irresistible as well. I haven’t spent as much time painting Gold Rush country as I have the eastern Sierra and California’s Central Coast, but it’s really starting to grow on me. Maybe it’s all that gold?
La Jolla Palms
8 x 10 inch seascape oil painting
With the hot weather we’ve been having, painting this was a cool refreshing treat. The location for this is along the La Jolla, California, shore, a little bit south of the main city.
