Oaks Near Olompali

Marin Oak

Olompali plein air

Painted just outside Novato’s Olompali Historic State Park this morning. I just love our California oak trees and the yellow grasses on the hillsides. May need a touch up later but done for today in 2 hours. Trying to prepare for a personally challenging quick draw coming up next month in Lake Tahoe. 12″ X 16″ Oil on linen.

This little still life features my dear friend and pastry chef Paul Garcia’s delicious french macarones. The little pink one in the right corner is one of Patricia’s (his wife and my other dear friend) favorites – raspberry. 5″ X 7″ oil on ampersand gesso board.
