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.

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.

Samarian Madonna

AA160525-Madonnaspace-t

One could say a Madonna is an idealized spiritual person and seeker of truth. The clear light She seeks can be found on the core level of her being.

Crossing the Samarian desert can be a hot, dry and  challenging journey. Seeking a woman for a model for a Madonna one came up in our life portrait drawing sessions who truly fit the archetype.

Sadhu Samadhi

Sadhuspace-t

My journey to Asia was unforgettable. Nepal was my main focus and I was anxious to see everything.

The visit coincided with a Hindu Shiva-Ratri festival in Kathmandu, where I  met many sadhu’s from India, making a pilgrimage to the sacred Bagmati river and Pashupatinath temple complex.

The  amazing face and colorful costume of a Sadhu I met, led to this painting some years later.

A friends comment on this: “It is a major painting just for the achievement of painting a very wise man with such technical expertise, that his wisdom pierces the eyes of the beholders, me especially and FORCES me to spiritually evolve”.

space-tIn Hinduism, sādhu (“holy man”) denotes an ascetic, wandering monk. Although the vast majority of sādhus are yogīs, not all yogīs are sādhus. The sādhu is solely dedicated to achieving mokṣa (liberation), the fourth and final aśrama (stage of life), through meditation and contemplation of brahman. Sādhus often wear saffron-colored clothing, symbolizing their sanyāsa (renunciation)

Sadhus are sanyasi, or renunciates, who have left behind all material attachments and live in caves, forests and temples all over India and Nepal.

This picture is framed in a gold, semi-ornate frame.

space-tDriving south on the Oregon coast I noticed a pullover lookout spot and turned in.

There was a magnificent overlook of two bays and rock pinnacles. I was so moved by this view that I decided I would have to paint this.

To The painting I added fog and a coastline that would carry you far into the distance. I also included pelicans and in the foreground, sea lions. From Bodega Bay California, I added the ice plants and rock formations
to the foreground.
