January 28 - On the Santa Rosa Ecological Preserve

I may have mentioned that Duane Keiser is the reason I've decided to do these daily paintings. His painting a day is a great source of inspiration, although my art and his are light-years apart! Mine are plein this one.
"On the Plateau" What a beautiful day to head up to my beloved Santa Rosa Plateau, to paint on location and capture the late afternoon light on the oak-studded grasslands of this nature preserve. Original oil, 10 x 20 inches, US $425

January 25 - Drink in the Riverbed ( Norco )

"Drink in the Riverbed" A six by six inch canvas, with just a ton of detail and brushwork. This is the Norco Riverbed, near the city of the same name, where hundreds of riders ride on weekends. A good way to spend a day. $100

January 23 - White on White
