Day 3 – 4. It was snowing at DL Bliss and the mountain top was almost not visible when I had to stop painting yesterday. I sat near my car with my umbrella up to protect my palette from the moisture but had to abandon the painting and come back to finish it on day 4.

Day 4. We had a two hour quick draw at the Tahoe City Farmer’s Market off Commons Beach. It was fun and fast! I did it to challenge myself more than anything. Twenty three artists participated. Click on this wordpress article to see the paintings lined up and some of the artists, as we waited to hear the judging. 12″ X 16″ oil on linen.
Day 2 afternoon – I painted at Tahoe Beach State Park after hiking down to the water. This spot was perfect for avoiding the 35 mph gusts as I found a well sheltered location in the trees. 12″ X 16″ oil on linen.
Day 2 of the Tahoe Plein Air Event. In the morning we painted at Tahoe City’s Gatekeeper’s Museum today. I remember wishing I had a field of lupines to paint. And so it goes…be careful what you wish. This was not as fun as I’d hoped.. 12″ X 16″ oil on linen.
Day 1 of the North Tahoe Plein Air event I went to DL Bliss to paint boulders and sugar pines. It was a very windy day up on the mountain. Painted another right after. (2nd image).
I was delighted to see one of my paintings featured in the Tahoe Weekly publication when I went to pick up my packet of info and get my canvas stamped for the week’s event.
Painted at Picketts Junction Hope Valley today with the Tahoe Art League Plein air group. The water was running off the mountain at a nice clip and we finished up our critique just as it started to sprinkle. 16″ X 12″ oil on linen.
Very windy at South Lake Tahoe. I had to cut my 1st day short returning today to finish with even higher wind gusts. This past week has been the week of painting Mt Tallac which really intrigued me. This time of year the snow cross is most visible but soon will melt as the summer heat increases. 12″ X 16″ oil on linen.
Painted with the Tahoe Art League Plein air group on Sunday at the Upper Truckee Marsh next to Lake Tahoe with great views of Mt Tallac. It was a another beautiful day. We had a great turn out with 10 of us there painting or drawing! Oil on linen 16″ X 12″.
Yesterday, I painted this view of Mt Tallac in the afternoon. Gorgeous day but I did not completely finish so after my morning painting of the Marsh I was able to complete this one. 12″ X 16″ oil on linen.
