"Sandy Trail" ©

This trail winds under the cypress trees down to the ocean along the Big Sur coast.  I'll be painting in Carmel in a few weeks during the 19th Annual Carmel Art Festival and looking forward to meeting the other artists and painting my "socks" off.

"Creekside" ©

After a week of traveling the state, time at the easel today completed the process of being home.  California is very dry.  The wild flowers are trying with all of their might to bloom, without much luck.  This painting is a spot I have painted many times and will continue too.  The lovely meeting of the trees over the creek create a window to the mountains beyond and that is what keeps bringing me back to this spot.

"Light and Land Show'

"Winter Puddle", Oil
"Sunny Afternoon", Oil

These 2 paintings recently sold at the "Light and Land" show at Segil Gallery. The show will hang until April 28th, so there is another couple of weeks if you would like to see the show. I am headed out of town for a week to paint and ride the rails in our speeder with my husband. His Mom passed a couple of weeks ago and a he could use a break.

"Early Morning on the Rails" ©

Tonight I had the chance to "play" in the paint and just have fun. We are headed on a rail trip, so this was the perfect subject to try to capture.

"Rocky Riverbed" ©

Over the past 6 years I have been adding to this blog, very rarely has "life" taken the front seat. We buried my husbands Mother last week and another family member is gravely ill. Artwork took a back seat to all that you do at times like this. I am finally in good enough shape to paint and this rocky riverbed was my first effort after several days away from my easel. It felt very good to disappear into a painting. I am thankful everyday to have art in my life.
