"Pumpkin Farm" - Sold


This was painted the week before Halloween in Petaluma, California. I tried to suggest pumpkins in a field without having to get too detailed. This painting was also exhibited in November & December 2007 at the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association's "Less is More" miniature show.

I started this painting on the last day of the Slo plein Air event but didn't get it finished. I went back out with Mike Rada after we turned in our paintings and finished it. As we were finishing our paintings Walter Porter came out and started a painting.

Mission Park, San Luis Obispo - Sold

This was painted on Saturday's Quickdraw for the SLO Plein AIr event. We had 90 minutes to complete the painting and then it was auctioned off in the park. I had a hard time deciding what to paint and ended up trying to capture the light as it passed through these eucalyptus trees. The refected light on the trunks were all quite different and beautiful. I forgot to shoot a photo until after I framed it. Ed Terpening was kind enough to take the photo as I left my camera in the car.

Glimmer of Morro Rock

This was the evening painting for the second day of the SLO Plein Air event. I got to this view of Morro Rock just as the sun was almost down. I loved how the rock disappear into the atmosphere and tried to capture the light in a 45 minute painting.

This was the first painting I did for the 2007 San Luis Obispo Plein Air event. I painting this over two days, 2 - 3 hours per day. I had a blast painting this size and want to do more larger pieces on location.
