California impressionist plein air oil painting
In the springtime, the warmer weather invites me to do more plein air painting, and to visit areas where the trees and flowers are bursting with life. And nowhere is that more apparent than in California’s Central Coast, in San Luis Obispo County. These sycamores were growing in a little clump on the side of a hill, with last year’s sage at their feet. It was late in the day, and within a half an hour the trees were starting to be covered with shadows.
Along Bishop Creek
8 x 6 inch oil painting
Bishop Creek in the High Sierra is a blaze of color in the fall, when the aspens turn. This miniature painting features the brilliance of the foliage in contrast to the cool rush of water.More Sierra Nevada paintings here

San Gabriel Sunset Glow
12 x 16 inches
oil on canvas
This is a view of the upper arroyo seco area of Pasadena that I never tire of, whether it’s in the morning when the mountains are cool and blue violet, or the late afternoon when they turn ruddy shades of gold and orange. This is painted from the point of view of the San Rafael hills, on the west side of the arroyo.

Moonstone Beach Moment

Moonstone Beach in Cambria is one of my favorite shores to paint. This miniature 6 x 6 inch painting captures the freshness of the surf, with the mist in the air, on a beautiful fall day.

Pasadena’s Rose Bowl
(with soccer field)
8 x 10 oil painting
It’s getting to be Rose Bowl time again … so I thought I’d do another painting of our hometown landmark. I haven’t been to many games there lately, but I do enjoy walking the 3 mile perimeter, especially on a beautiful day. Yes, I know there’s a restroom building and some other building clutter out there, but I reserve the artist’s license to leave those bits out, ok?
The jumbo screen is blank but if you purchase the painting and would like your team mentioned there, let me know – anything’s possible!

Eaton Canyon with San Gabriels
6 x 8 inches
oil on canvas
This little study is from September, when the summer grasses were showing a wide range of colors. Water runs through this area and is collected into a settling basin which recharges a local aquifer. Nature’s soft pastels seem to harmonize under the late summer sun.

California Sierra foothill landscape oil painting
This is one of California’s magnificent oak-strewn valleys, in the Sierra foothills near Springville. Distant oaks are lost in the mist that settles in low places, while up in the craggy places, wildflowers flourish.
