The Bridge

Acrylic on Panel - 12 x 16 inches

I'm trying to find ways of representing local icons without having them look like our typical tourist imagery. We'll see.

Spring Returns

Acrylic on Panel - 16 x 12 inches

With the scene freshly in mind, I did another version with the knife. These bigger panels take a lot more paint, and I thought a big blade might speed things up. It did, but just a little bit.

Spring Comes to the Vineyard

Acrylic on Panel - 16 x 12 inches

I'd done a small study for this last year, and thought since it Spring again (well here in CA it is) I'd do a larger studio version.

Stow Lake

Acrylic on Panel - 12 x 16 inches

There's a small pagoda on the shore of an island in the middle of a lake in Golden Gate Park. Some say it's haunted. I thought I heard someone call out for help, but I'm pretty sure it was just a goose.

Nude (sketch)

Acrylic on Panel - 8 x 10 inches

Went to a day-long painting class led by Sergio Lopez, at Samantha Buller's studio in Petaluma. I started off with some really awful sketches, but after lunch things started clicking. Sergio is a great teacher and is currently revamping his website, so look for it soon. Looking forward to taking some classes with Samantha herself, soon.
