Paradise Cove Sunset
18 x 24 inches
Oil on linen canvas
I can remember going to Paradise Cove in Malibu since I was a child. It was always such a beautiful place, and it never fails to delight.
If you’re going to be in California, make a point to have brunch at the cafe on the beach, and stroll around the shore. The big cliffs prove just how magical Malibu can be – any time of day. You might even see some dolphins playing offshore.

“Sunny Day, Laguna Beach”
12 x 16 inches, oil painting
This plein air style painting was fun to paint, capturing the breezy, easy warmth and salt spray of Laguna Beach, California. Marine paintings and seascapes always take me to a happy place.

“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.

Asilomar Waves (Near Pacific Grove, Monterey Peninsula, California)
8 x 10 inches, plein air oil painting
In the past few weeks, I had the opportunity to travel up and down California’s west coast, enjoying the spring wildflowers and the clear skies over the oceans. One of my favorite painting spots is Asilomar, near Pacific Grove, on the Monterey Peninsula. My little Strada mini easel set up so quickly I was painting in no time. Whenever I paint ocean scenes, it takes more time to get into the rhythm of the scene. With other landscapes there’s little movement except for perhaps cloud shadows. The ocean is a whole different challenge and its dynamic nature takes more concentration.
Big Sur Vista
8 x 8 inches
oil on canvas plein air panel
This is a scene I’ve enjoyed painting before, and will no doubt return to again. The location captures the majesty of the Big Sur coastline, along with the serenity of the water at a quiet moment. This is a little south of the Monterey Peninsula.
