Hillside Sycamores California landscape oil painting

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. 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.

Yosemite Merced River miniature oil painting

February 13th, 2014

Merced Road
4 x 6 inch oil painting

This miniature oil painting captures a part of the Merced River along on one of the roads into Yosemite. Last year there was a good amount of water in the stream last year – I hate to think of how dry it might be now.

February 8th, 2014

“In the Canyon”
Eaton Canyon miniature 5 x 7 oil painting
Eaton Canyon is near Pasadena, California

This miniature original oil painting captures the mid day light at Eaton Canyon, a watershed area near Pasadena. Rough and wild, our occasional rainstorms rush down the canyon creating a seasonal stream. We could use a lot more water this year!

Winter’s Here Owens Valley Sierra California landscape oil painting

January 20th, 2014

“Winter’s Here”
8 x 10 inches
oil painting of Sierra peaks

This small oil painting reminds us that sometimes the Sierra really is packed with snow, bringing water to all of California. I sure hope we get some rain soon – the drought is terrible now.
The location of this part of the range is in the upper Owens River Valley, not far from the Owens Gorge. The dry grasses and the cool snow shadows create a natural complementary color scheme.

Put your mouse over the image to pin it.

Carmel Bay cypress seascape California impressionist oil painting

December 30th, 2013

Carmel Bay Cypress
6 x 8 inch oil painting

This miniature oil painting of a cypress tree growing by Carmel Bay was inspired by a visit last year. Cypresses always look sculptural to me as their form reflects the action of the local winds. The petite size fits perfectly into a miniature collection.

San Gabriel Sunset Glow California Pasadena landscape oil painting

December 28th, 2013

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.
