Eucalyptus Lane, #266

Trees, mountains, and wild flowers....I really like this piece.  I have been planning our family RV trip to California, I was reading a web page on the central coast about eucalyptus trees and monarch butterflies.  Apparently there is a state park near the coast that is quite famous for the migrating monarchs.  I can't wait.  Painting them will be the difficulty.  We'll see.
This painting will be up for auction on my online gallery soon...

Twin Live Oaks, #254

Happy Birthday Jen....
My dear friend Jen Wilber just grabbed this off my wall of finished paintings for her birthday.  I hadn't posted this little baby because I loved it so much.  I look forward to painting more live oaks next week in California...

Eucalyptus lake, #265

I painted this a week or so ago.  Oops, I should say, I somehow painted this a week or so ago.  It's amazing with everything that has been going on, but I am happy to say we finally bought an RV.  When I pick it up in a few days I will post some shots.  I think Leaf has already posted some pictures to Facebook.
I can't wait to hit the road.  We head out soon for California.  We are driving over to the central coast to spend a few days on our way to Chico.  I love that part of the state.  The fastest way to Chico is the I-5, don't, love that so much, the coast is a better bet.  Well, back to packing.
Check back soon for some wet plain airs.....
This one will be up for auction later today at my online gallery,

Blue Monument, #262

I haven't added a new painting in quite awhile.  I have been RV crazy, I guess you could say.  We are planning on buying a new RV, so I have driven all over the valley to try to find the perfect one.  It's been fun and a little time consuming.  We hope to take a big RV trip this coming summer, all over the southwest and into Canada. I get a little tunnel vision when it comes to this sort of thing.  So as a result my painting and even golf has taken a back seat.
But back to the painting,  I painted this over the weekend from a photo, but I hope to be painting  Monument Valley from my new RV very soon.  The valley is beautiful, especially in person.  If you have never been there, it's well worth the trip.  Or just buy my painting which will be up for auction soon on my online gallery,

Pondside Pine, #260

This painting was inspired by a Edgar Payne drawing I found over the weekend.  I used his sketches as a reference.  I came up with all the colors and mood of the piece.  I feel I did it justice.  I love the coolness of the painting.  The temp dropped way down to 60 over the weekend, we even had our fireplace lit.  I guess I was in the mood for a winter landscape.
