This little painting was done early in the morning looking down across Tomales bay from a hill overlook at the Marconi Center. I worked quickly with a palette knife.

I spent a day painting in the little town of Rico, Colorado last July. It was nearly 100 degrees that day and serious fire threats everywhere. So, I was especially attracted to paint the retired 1953 firetruck that is parked next to the station on the main drag.

I associate painting in the same location with Monet's haystack series. The angle of the sunlight, moisture in the air, and the growth of various grasses and bushes change with the seasons, even in coastal Northern California where we don't have dramatic changes like the east coast. I have been to this place many times, and each time I see it a little more.

Last July I spent a week painting in Telluride, Colorado thanks to my wonderful son who made it possible. This was done in the morning from a deck area at about 10,000 feet. It took some getting used to the altitude. The mountain views and Aspens from every vantage were spectacular to paint.
