Recent Landscape Paintings

Loleta, February Morning oil on panel 12x9

I'm posting several landscapes I've painted over the past six months. Humboldt County
had a very dry and sunny December, January and February. I was outside painting most
of those stunning days. I find the color and tones in the winter months very beautiful as
well as a great contrast to all the greens. This time of year we are swimming in green. I'm
currently working on paintings of our garden, with a few outings to paint other locations.
I hope to get up to Trinidad to paint the ocean and rocks later this summer. All of the work
was painted on site. My photos of the paintings are not the best. I hope to soon buy a better
camera and figure out how to deal with the glare. Thanks for viewing the work. I have also
been working on some still life and portrait paintings over the past eight months and plan
to post those later this summer.
