Long drive around Nevada to stay off the closed Luther Pass in California today. The snow melt which is part of the West Fork Carson River was full blown today even though it was 30 degrees. It was a gorgeous day with plenty of rushing water sounds to keep me company. Oil on canvas 12″ X 16″.
Happy Easter everyone! Here’s to a simple but yummy breakfast on this beautiful day. Oil on canvas 12X16.
Beautiful clear day looking across Lake Tahoe from Zephyr Cove. Hard to know how many more of these days we’ll have with snow on the mountains. Oil on canvas 9″ X 12″.
The garden steps beckon you up the hill to see what else is changing in this early part of the spring. Oil on canvas 20″X20″.
Still life of garden camellias kept me and the flowers out of the rain before they were pummeled. This hand-blown glass vase was a bit challenging to paint. When I thought I was done with a dark background in place, I was pretty upset with the results. After sleeping on it I felt the lighter background would show the bouquet off better. I think that was the right decision but welcome any comments. Oil on canvas 24X24.
Beautiful day at Regan Beach with Linda Rosenblum yesterday. It was a bit icy going down as everyone likes to make the steps into a sled hill, but we had fun all the same. Next storm will load this beach up and the golden sands will again temporarily disappear.
