Genoa in the shadow of the Carson Range

\

Painted in Genoa yesterday. It was settled by Mormans, the oldest and 1st town in Nevada. The day was very windy with no shelter or umbrella. I had to weigh down the easel and stabilize it with one hand. Weeks ago I had seen this sight on a drive and had to go back to paint it. Also got paint on my lens so the scene photo is a bit blurry. Oil on gallery wrapped canvas 16″ X 20″.

Jobs Peak

It was just after mid-day when I painted Jobs Peak looking out from Genoa and River Fork Ranch, Nevada. A bit bright at that time of day but I was able to complete it just the same. Love the views from this town and will head back once the weather gets a bit better post latest atmospheric river. I am trying to loosen up my style to challenge myself a bit more. 12″ X 16″ oil on linen.
