Autumn

AA140126-Autumn_space-t

Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year and presents the most beautiful colors of nature.

This is a composite of one of my favorite walks. In Autumn, certain Oak trees are really quite colorful and if there has been an early rain the hills turn green and colorful mushrooms emerge.

One can often spot jackrabbits in hurry to enjoy an evening meal.

The Spider and the Fly

AA140122-SandF

space-t

An old house where I lived in Santa Monica in the 1960s, had many shrubs and flowers growing in the backyard.

One day I noticed the geraniums growing next to the old window. I loved the shadows of the leaves on the walls. I went inside and grabbed my paints and brushes, as I was painting I noticed there was a spider and a fly in this scene so I included them and named it “Spider and the Fly”

Green Pastures

AA140107-Pastures

One of my hikes in the uplands of Maui I encountered a small woodland in the middle of a pasture. It seemed like a small oasis in the middle of a large amount of pastureland, and became the basis for this painting.

Golden Hour

AA140106-GHourspace-t

Driving a peaceful road during sunset I looked over and there was this scene, which struck me, and of course I had to paint it.
The old barn was in this case a new barn but of course romanticizing it, I included an old barn I was familiar with in the area.

Golden Bough

AA140105-GBoughspace-t

On one of the prettiest walks I know, I had been admiring a row of large, old oak trees. On one particular walk the orange golden rays of sunshine were falling on them and that was a moment I decided I would have to paint this scene.

A visit to Sonoma Lake inspired me to include a lake in this painting. In reality this lake was only a field. I love to idealize a scene and that’s what happened here.

Sylvan Joy II

AA140120-SJ2space-t

A short walk on a beautiful back road late in the day, I came upon this scene.  A fine old Oak, backlit, and some green grass.

The underlying theme of this series is “oaks and lakes” so of course, I included water in the background.

To add interest to the foreground, I added my neighbor’s geese. The painting seems to have a luminous quality, an attribute I admire.

Sylvan Joy

AA140121-SJ-1

Friends who have a ranch in a remote part of Northern California, host an annual gathering of friends.

I have always admired their small lake so I brought my materials to do plein-air studies.  From these I completed the first of the sylvan joy series. I added the pink Lady flowers for color.

Spring Beauty

AA140119-SBeauty

Every springtime I would notice and enjoy the numerous wildflowers. I selected the tiny pink flowers of the Lamium Purpureum (mint family) and painted them first into the painting.

I enjoyed eating the Miners Lettuce and the Redwood Sorrel growing under the Redwood trees. Beautiful blooms of the apple trees in the orchard, as the  trees came to life in springtime.

In the distance is Mount St. Helena, an extinct Volcano. Mountain peaks in the Mayacamas Mountains with flanks in Napa, Sonoma, California. It is one of the few mountains in the San Francisco Bay Area to receive any snowfall during the winter.space-t

Mist

AA140114-Mistspace-t

Ever intrigued by the coastlines of Oregon this piece reflects a visit to Cannon Beach, where it seemed always to have been foggy when I visited there.

Seagulls were wading in the shallow water looking for food. Pillars of rock rising out of the mist suddenly received golden rays of the sun, breaking through the clouds.  Framed in a gold semi-ornate frame.

Toad Springs

AA140124-Tspringsspace-t

After spending a cold winter in Wisconsin, I ended up in sunny Arkansas. There I spent three months living in a beautiful location next to the Buffalo River.

My shelter was a school bus converted to a house. I worked on several plein-air paintings during that time and amongst them was “Toad Springs”.

The surface for the painting was a rock I found in the stream that is depicted in the painting. The star was a toad I kept in short captivity, to be the model for this painting.
