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 […]

Summer’s Refuge

On a summer camping trip, I found a quiet place to paint and take in the glory of the late afternoon. At this remote lake in the volcanic Southern Oregon landscape, osprey and eagles spread their wings while fish find safety in the cooler waters far from anglers’ hooks. 8″ x 10″ Oil on Canvas […]

Summer Vines

I also painted this at Paschals Winery during the annual Southern Oregon Plein Air Competition.  I love how the haziness in the summer air created a cool green-blue that contrasted nicely with the vibrant golds of the hills in the foreground.  SOLD
