I’m hanging my work this week as the featured local artist at the Wilding Museum in Solvang. The opening for the show will be Saturday, December 12 from 3-5 pm. This is one of the new paintings that I’ll have on display. The education center upstairs will also have a display of artwork by my talented high school students. Come help us celebrate and then enjoy the holiday lights in downtown Solvang!

I had to return to this spot on Trout Creek three times to complete this one. The first time it snowed on me. The second time it was 22 degrees and my paint turned to ice-cream. Third time’s a charm. It looks like we might luck out and get a winter this year!
Acrylic on Canvas 12″x36″ — What a beautiful spot to enjoy a late autumn sunset… happy dogs, happy people and happy painters…
Acrylic and casein on canvas– 9×12″ The colder weather is coloring the leaves with some nice warm hues.
Acrylic on Canvas 20×48″ This is the widest painting I’ve worked on in a long while. With four feet horizontal, I was able to squeeze in the Jesusita trail snaking through the canyon in shadows on the left all the way to Inspiration Point on that plateau on the right below Cathedral Peak.
I’m excited to have one of my paintings on a special run of a 2013 Pino Noir donated by Ken Brown wines for a fundraiser this weekend from 3-6 at the Marriott in Buellton by an organization called People Helping People who are working to help farm and vineyard workers. The event is open to the public and you can find more information here.
