San Marcos Pass Sunset

Oil on Canvas Panel– The skies have been incredible these evenings and mornings as the sun has been sweeping a lower arc across the sky and lingering longer in the golden zone.  I attempted to freeze this one in paint from a turn out on San Marcos Road last weekend.  Next time I think I’ll bring three tiny canvases to try to catch those subtle color shifts that are just minutes a part, but so different from each other.

Oil on Canvas— 16×24”— I was really honored to be invited to be a new member of the Oak Group last week.  I have great admiration for the artists in this group— not only for the awesome art made by the members, but also for their environmental agenda of using their art to raise awareness and funding to protect wild spaces.  I really look forward to showing with them in the future.

Sunpockets

20×48″ Oil on Canvas– I love how a canopy of trees creates little spotlights that highlight little parts of the forest floor.  Sometimes these illuminate delicate plants that wait for their thirty minutes of direct sunlight a day and sometimes they make a pool in the creek glow like a lantern.
