15×30″ Acrylic– Any UCSB students will know this spot… how lucky we were to get to walk out on this trail between classes. There used to be a red fox who lived on this hill that Lauren and I would see on early morning runs here. The sun was over a sea of stratus clouds when I started and within an hour the fog bank blew in, erasing the scene.
15×30″ Acrylic $850– Smooth emerald glassy waves were rolling slowly into shore a couple days ago as I painted the light from the late afternoon autumn sun starting it’s evening descent.
20×20″ Acrylic on Panel— This is one of the many circles of bluegrass and old time musicians jamming around the Stow House at the annual Fiddler’s Convention last weekend. I wish I could paint the intricate music being plucked and bowed by their fingers…
16×20″ acrylic– $700– The sun is getting lower in the sky giving everything a warm autumn light. I was tempted to throw in one of the occasional joggers or dogs that trotted along the path, but they were a bit too quick for my brush.
I’m honored to have work in two shows opening this week. Thursday night at Gallery 113 for First Thursday there is an opening for a SCAPE benefit show for the Los Padres Forest Watch. Then, Friday evening come help us celebrate the opening of a show of landscapes of the tri-counties at the Wilding museum.
12×24″ acrylic– (sold)– My daughters and I always walk up into this tree when we are hiking this section of the trail. It would be good for playing “hot lava monster” on, but instead of hot lava you fall into poison oak. : )
20×48″ Acrylic on Canvas– This is a studio painting from one of my plein air studies I created this summer. I had fun playing with color variations and paint textures. It is fascinating how much different the experience of a painting is when you increase the scale– it feels more like you can walk into it.
