Reaching For The Sky

 From a visit to Stout Grove, part of Jedediah State Park just across the Oregon boarder into California.  These redwoods are magnificent.  Tried to capture their splendor.  12x6 Oil

Orange Floats

 Painted this 6x8 at Brookings Harbor, the commercial docks area.  It was a bit of a grey day but the floats hanging on the back of this boat seemed to glow.  Found out from a fisherman that walked by that the setup is used to fish for black cod.  Oil

Painting Plein Air at Lone Ranch Beach

 Just a view of the scene and my small pochade set up.  Family was visiting and I let them explore the tide pools while I painted.  6x8 oil

"A Day Off"

 Painted this 6x8 (inches) at Brookings harbor. It was sunny but a chill wind was blowing.  There's a lot of texture from thick paint.  I forgot my visor so my eyes were getting seared by the sun.  I worked quick so I could get back in my car to warm up.

"Calm II"

 A calm and actually a grey day just north of Brookings, Oregon.  8 x 24 Oil

"Lola Lake"

 Done plein air at Lola Lake. The paint is very thick and was wet still when I took photo so there's some glare, sorry. The lake is so overgrown with reeds and grasses that only a small patch of open water was visible. I had to paint from the trail just over looking the scene below.  It was a beautiful sunny day but very windy on the beach so we hiked a section of Coast Trail to get to this spot.  10x12 oil on board
