Sierra Light



This was painted at Alpine Meadows ski resort for the 2010 North Tahoe Plein Air event. I was honored to receive the Artist Choice Award for this piece.

I was drawn to the foreground rocky mass which was mostly in shadow with just a glint of light hitting the top edges. The background mountain receded with the early morning atmosphere and the sky was full of warmth on this sunny day. 100910

Gentle Truckee River - in private collection



Sergio Lopez and I painted from a bridge over the Truckee River between Truckee and Northstar. I always enjoy painting water and wanted to lean toward the abstract in this piece. This was painted for my great host who put us up for the 2010 North Tahoe Plein Air event. Unfortunately I did not get a great photo of this painting.
