We went to Idaho for a wedding and stayed in a beautiful secluded cabin. These are the views.
Some houses in the neighborhood.
Since I grew up in a military family we moved around a lot. 3 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 2 high schools around the US and in Japan. Monterey, CA was the 2nd place and that’s why I wanted to paint the landscape here.
From my trip to Venice last year. Excavated it today in my semi-successful studio cleanup effort.
One of my favorite spots to paint on a gray day a few weeks back.
I painted this a few weeks ago, but it was a study for a wedding gift and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. 8 x 13 inches, oil on linen.
Last week I was in Las Vegas, tagged along at a conference. Not really a gambler. I spent the days painting in the desert and the evenings eating conference appetizers and drinking seemingly unlimited quantities of white wine.
Here’s one from when I went to visit my aunt in Boise. I debated whether I should post this painting because it’s right on the edge of work I think is complete enough, vs work that is only a study. But I like it like this.

Crystal Cove state park- a great place for a not too strenuous hike with plenty of scenery.
