"Oak Shadows" The second painting from being on location , this one focusing on the dappled shadows beneath the large coastal live oaks and Engleman oaks. What I like about this piece is the way the distant oak is framed by the branches of the near one. Original oil, 9 x 12 inches, $200.

"Morning Rocks, Sylvan Meadows" I went on location again, with a painting buddy, and the morning light in the open space of the Plateau is rich with the illusion of moisture. This is a quick study, 12 x 12 inches, $200.

"Impending Change" Today's painting was done on location as I was getting new tires on my truck. I walked into a nearby field and saw this 80+ year old eucalyptus tree with a hawk's nest in it, and since it is sitting on soon-to-be-developed land, its days are numbered. The distant hills of Sun City are in the background. Original oil, 9 x 12 inches, $200.

"Revision of Lake Evening" Today in the studio I worked over several canvases, and the one that provides the most learning for students is this one. If you'll compare the one on February 3rd, you'll see the original plein air study. Original oil, 5 x 7 inches, available for $100.

"Young Pothos" It was late when we returned from a date together, my husband and I, so I picked a simple subject--the Pothos house plant that sits on my kitchen sink. With care and feeding, it will grow to envelop the pot hanger above the sink! Original oil, 6 x 4 inches, available for $100.
