20×48″ Oil on Canvas– Morning is my favorite time of day and spring is my favorite season. I love the sense of newness both create and the feeling that your day is a blank canvas ready to explore. I created this studio painting from a couple of plein air watercolor sketches I made from up in the foothills a couple weeks ago.
15×30″ oil on canvas panel– The water birds are celebrating the return of their swimming holes here at Devereux Slough.
Chris Potter and I have our paintings hanging at the beautiful Pritzlaff Conservation Center Gallery. Please join us for refreshments and live painting at the rescheduled art reception this Sunday afternoon from 2-4 pm.
12×16″ oil on canvas– This was painted looking southeast towards Montecito last week… I didn’t know at the time how much my thoughts and heart would be pulled in the same direction this week.
18×24″ oil on canvas– I have fond memories from running on these paths around the Lagoon as a student at UCSB. What is that quaint town on the cliffs in the distance you ask? Perhaps a quiet fishing village? That is Isla Vista, California, quiet only because finals are this week… good luck Gauchos!
