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″.
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.
I scrapped off the sand and finished this painting recently. Last spring the wind kicked up in Tahoe Keys and knocked it onto the beach. With all the snow and rain this year, I would not be able to stand in the same location, so this is one of those historic takes on the mountain reflection and the lupine in Lake Tahoe. Oil on linen 12″ X 16″.
Gorgeous day at Zephyr on Tuesday! The sun had so much warmth in it! There was absolutely no snow so the sand was in full reveal. 12 x 16 oil on linen.
French Macarons and lucious strawberries on the menu! It was an overcast day and lots of private property signs up so decided a still life would be more welcoming. Oil on gessobord 9″ X 12″.
Presidio View of Golden Gate Bridge
Capturing different perspectives of the bridge. Fun trying to capture the crazy fog that floats in over the top of the headlands. Oil on linen 12″x 16″.
