"Pismo Beach Dunes" ©

Very early in the morning the plant life on the dunes take on a violet hue to match the cold breeze off the ocean.  It is so very quiet, even the waves seem like a hundred miles away.  Standing there painting, I felt like the only person on the earth with a strong sense of timelessness.

"Around the Bend on Hwy One"

One of the advantages of camping along the Big Sur coast, is that you can stumble out of your tent as the sunlight comes streaming though the mountains at dawn. Without another soul around, accompanied by the singing of the birds and just absorb the cool quiet beauty of a fresh new day.  That is the inspiration for this new painting, for an upcoming exhibit featuring California's Highway One.  

Oil on canvas, 24" X 36"
