"High Sierra Trail", ©

A few weeks ago a small group, known as PAC6 Painters, packed into Lake Ediza to paint for a week.  All of the words that John Muir wrote came to life visually on that trip.  We saw scenes that took your breath away, stunned you to silence and made you want to sing and cry at the same time.  This painting is the trail to Iceberg Lake and we actually did sing, hiking down the trail.  

Oil on Canvas, 20" X 24"

This painting is available for sale at the Traveling The West Art Show & Sale, Southwest Gallery & Featherstone Arts, 4500 Sigma Road, Dallas, Texas or online

24" X 30, Oil on Canvas

Today I am framing up paintings for the Thousand Oak Art Festival this weekend.  This painting, "Pacific Morning Glow", was an experiment in layering paint, allowing the rosy glow behind the yet to be sunlit clouds show just a bit.  If you are in the area please stop by the festival and say "hi".  
Here are the details:
12th Annual Thousand Oaks Arts Festival
September 19 - 20
10am - 5pm
Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza
2100 Thousand Oaks Blvd., T.O.

"Approaching Winter Storm", © #SantaClarita #laurawambsgans

For the next couple of months this painting, along with 4 others are hanging in the College of the Canyons Art Gallery.  The exhibit is called Plein Air, California Landscape painting and has some very good pieces.  Mike Hernandez, Alan Garber and Karl Dempwolf have paintings that are worth studying for a long time.  Karl loaned two original William Wendt paintings and there is a nice collection from Steve and Doris Marie Zimmer.  A good painting buddy and friend Lorelle Miller has several paintings in the show too and it's always a bonus to hang with a friend.
