A fabulous art student of mine, Susy, sent the idea along and it could easily save you $20 for a paintbrush holder. Won’t tip or accidentally get knocked over. Plus, when it inevitably gets dirty with paint, just […]

Call of the Trail

Up on Mount Ashland this summer, I painted these beautiful Doug Firs standing like sentinels of the Pacific Crest Trail. Every summer, hundreds answer the call to hike the trail from Mexico to Canada, or at least some portion of it. Even if you can’t go this year, hang this painting in your entryway so […]
