Painted with the Tahoe Art League yesterday. There were 12 of us and the lunch critique was held in my garden. Great turn out! This view looks toward Mt Rose from the Upper Truckee Marsh/Meadow. There was only the tiniest bit of Lake Tahoe in the distance but the light on it really caught my eye. Oil on linen 11″ x 14″.
Painted late in the day on the San Francisco Bay Trail skirting the old Hamilton Air Force base. This site was converted back to wetlands several years ago and the vistas are fantastic! The previous day we had hiked the trail with the dogs at about the same time, so I knew I had to return. This view is looking into the hills away from the Bay. 11″ x 14″ oil on linen.
Just finished a larger painting from the study I did at Schneider Ranch in Carson City last month. What a great spot to paint. There were so many options and well worth many more visits. Thanks to Kim Leavitt-Franke for getting permission to paint there. Oil on gallery wrapped linen 24″ x 36″. Smaller study 11″ x 14″. Click the link below this post to see the larger painting in detail. It may need a retake as the lighting was a bit strong in the studio.
View across to North Tahoe from Camp Rich. The Lake was filled with boats tied to mooring buoys. Oil on panel 8″x 10″.
This was the scene at Camp Richardson on the pier painting near the historic homes in Valhalla yesterday. Gorgeous day, but icy waters did not see any swimmers. Plein air oil on linen 11″ x 14″.
Beautiful sunny morning in Tahoe at the flooded Upper Truckee Marsh.Oil on linen panel 6″x 8″.
I have been busy making these one of a kind porcelain fish sculptures (salmon and trout). The ones on wooden boxes are both a painting and sculpture. All are ready to hang on your wall. I have opened an Etsy Shop specifically for selling them. Take a look and you may find something you like. They would make great presents for a fishing enthusiast or Father’s Day!
Painted in one of my favorite locations yesterday, the Upper Truckee Marsh/Meadow. It was a super windy day with gusts of 35-40 mph, so lots of holding down and vibrations were occurring. This painting looks northeast toward Mt Rose. Used my one of my newest archival linen panels perfectly made by my husband! 8″ x 10″ oil on linen.
Rode the gondola up to the viewing platform and painted today. The temperature was about 50F but still had to dodge snow balls from the fights between all the kids up on the decks. Oil on canvas 12″ X 16″.
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″.
