Oil on canvas - 6" x 8" (Sold) This is a study completed a few years ago of a small vineyard on Old Mission Peninsula which fascinated me for a long time before I attempted to paint it. I am so often reminded how quickly the land changes; recently I passed by and noticed that the grove of trees on the right side had been cut down, leaving a huge gaping hole in the hillside. Several months later the hillside was planted with something, possibly more grapes.
Oil on canvas, 24" x 36" - Thought I would show this new oil at an early stage. I intend to leave this piece relatively soft with simple shapes using a limited pallette. I have since added some cadmium red and yellow.
Oil on canvas - 18" x 14" This painting is still in progress but I thought you would find it interesting. While walking the beach at Empire, I just happened upon several boulders jutting out from the dunes. The play of light across the grasses and rocks and the shadows totally fascinated me.
