Near my grandfather’s place deep in the Oklahoma countryside.
In the hills above Laguna Beach.
Hot sun on golden grass, and deep green shade.
I love the yellow and deep green of California in the summer. Northeast of San Diego.
A green summer meadow on a farm in Blacksburg, Virginia. The cows are just over the hill.
This painting is one I started in Virginia on our visit to Blacksburg last autumn. It’s been hanging around the studio unfinished until now.
We had all kinds of weather on that trip- just about everything except for snow. This day was sunny and nice- more like summer than fall.
And tomorrow! Please join us at the Lyceum Gallery in downtown San Diego for the opening of my show, “Places Here.” It’s an exploration of San Diego’s urban neighborhoods, old houses, and hidden alleyways.
Reception: 6-8 PM.
Morning in a Hillcrest alley. Abandoned tower PC in the dry, crackly weeds.
Looking down from high hills over farms and fields below, in the Santa Ynez Valley near Santa Barbara.
This painting is the opposite of how I usually work. Usually I start small and then work large. But this time, I started with a big painting, which turned into a surly adolescent.
So I started over with a small sketch to try to figure out the composition.
