The early morning sky just after sunrise, reflected pink light in the Agua Fria creek.

This was painted after the spring rains in the Sierra foothills. The water was rushing over the slate- colored rocks in mini-waterfalls. I tried to get the quality of the light and energy while wondering if any wild cats or bears might be watching!

This was a distant view in the Sierra foothills on a Spring afternoon.  I was thinking about the contrast of soft rolling hills and floating cloud with the sharp value changes of the craggy rock ridge-line. I used various shades of conte chalks from black to white on a grey primed heavy weight paper.
