Peaches

Acrylic on Panel - 8 x 8 inches

I remember this time of year bearing an abundance of corn and tomatoes, but I didn't expect so many peaches at the market.

Parade Watch

Acrylic on Panel - 9 x 12 inches

I tried a bigger version of this, but I found the reference photo didn't have enough reference details for me to be working at this size/detail ratio.

Rusty Three

Acrylic on Panel - 8 x 10 inches

I tried a very simplified version of this scene, starting with a very dark purple underpainting and then carving the trees out from the background with the bright greens.

Garden Path

Acrylic on Panel - 8 x 10 inches

Those red tries are like a bullfighters cape, taunting me to paint them. Promising me it will be easy. Never letting me get more than "almost" there.

Weather Check

Acrylic on Panel - 9 x 12 inches

You never know what the weather is going to be in SF, from moment to moment, from neighborhood to neighborhood.

I wonder if future generations will wonder why so many paintings from the teens are of solitary figures looking at small rectangular objects in their hands.
