Monday, March 30th, 2015

“Mariposa Meadow – Trabucco Gardens with wildflowers” 9 x 12 inches, oil on plein air panel When spring comes to the Western Sierra foothills, the meadows light up with color. Goldfields, a small yellow flower, mixes it up with lupine and white popcorn flowers. Valley oaks, now garbed in green, provide a backdrop for the [...]

“Plein Air Poppies” 6 x 8 inches, oil on plein air canvas panel This was painted in Lancaster near the Poppy Reserve in Southern California’s Antelope Valley. It was late in the day and the colors were just getting more and more intense as I kept working on it, making changes and modifications. Interested in [...]

Overlooking the Ojai Valley 8 x 10 oil on linen plein air panel This new painting features a view of the beautiful Ojai Valley, a verdant agricultural area northwest of Los Angeles, in Ventura County.

Across the Poppy Fields 6 x 8 inches, oil How about a little brightness and color as we’re approaching winter? This miniature poppy painting will cheer up a quiet corner in your home or office. Perhaps a gift for a flower loving friend? This impressionistic landscape was inspired by a spring trip to the Antelope [...]

Vintage oak – vineyard oak tree oil painting – California landscape

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Vintage Oak – Vineyard oil painting 12 x 16 inches, oil on canvas I never tire of painting oak trees, or vineyards, for that matter. So here’s a new painting that combines both in one composition. From a California hilltop, the vines stretch in all directions, resting after the “crush.” The late afternoon sun gives [...]

Gold Rush Country Ranch California landscape oil painting

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

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.

Hillside Sycamores California landscape oil painting

Friday, March 7th, 2014

“Hillside Sycamores” 9 x 12 inches 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. [...]

California landscape – Eaton Canyon with San Gabriels oil painting

Friday, November 15th, 2013

SOLD 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.
