Newport Beach Sailboat Sunset – seascape oil painting

“Newport Beach Sailboat Sunset”
12 x 16 inch oil painting

This fine sailboat was spotted in Newport Harbor, Newport Beach California, cruising into the sunset, with irridescent colors showing on the sails. Perhaps it’s headed for the Yacht Club.

For the Glory of the Skies – Sierra California impressionist landscape

For The Glory of the Skies

20 x 24 inches
Oil on canvas

This new painting was inspired by the old hymn “For the Beauty of the Earth,” a song of Thanksgiving I learned as a child. I recalled the second line … “for the glory of the skies” … the moment I saw this scene in California’s Owens Valley, in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada, near the June Lake loop. The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas seemed an apt time to share it for the first time. If you are in Southern California, you are welcome to see the painting in person in my home studio.
