"Avila Beach - Central Coast"


Avila Beach down the central coast is always a favorite destination. This is a mid-afternoon view. This size is a bit of a deviation from my other paintings as I've been painting with big sheets of canvas and then cutting them down to size and adhering them to boards to paint on. The Russian impressionists favored this size for some reason...?

7"x11" oil on un-mounted canvas. $190.00 shipped.

"Napa Dreaming" Large Painting


This location is not far from the famous The French Laundry restaurant, which I have not had the pleasure of dining. I have painted plein air here a few times and this is the second big painting from that location. Great fun. Brushes and palette knifes for texture. Looks great in a black with gold lip frame.
