Yellow leaves by the San Diego River. We have beautiful autumn weather in December, and I painted this on location last year, and found it in the cabinet a few days ago. I felt like it just needed a little more work and it would be ready to go. Here’s the final result. Buy now
Here’s another painting of the bike path I used to ride to and from work, which wound through farms and forests and along an old railroad cutting through rock. It’s a nice ride if you’re in the Blacksburg area.
I started this painting either during or shortly after getting back from our trip to Blacksburg last autumn.
This is actually, finally, the last of the plein air pieces from our recent trip to Virginia. I just walked out of the house and set up my easel across the road. I hope to do more studio paintings from the trip as well.
I had a similar view from my place in Virginia, and though my work in those days was considerably more abstract- this was during my MFA days- I did many paintings with a similar format to this one. Looking out at a distant blue skyline, from a high elevation.
This is one of the last of the plein air paintings from our recent trip to Blacksburg, Virginia, though there are a couple more that need polishing. Most days the weather was cool if not cold and gray, which I liked, at least in small doses.
Walk in the woods in Blacksburg, Virginia- For Sale
Most every day in Virginia, it rained. But not this day, which was sunny and beautiful. I just finished this small studio painting last night, on the Huckleberry Trail in Blacksburg, VA.
*** Hurricane Relief Fundraiser ***
Some of you probably already saw this, but I’d like to donate money to an animal welfare organization in New York City to help with their storm relief efforts. I’m auctioning this painting, and all of the proceeds will go to Empty Cages Collective. You can read more about my effort on this blog post. And thanks again.
