Two new Mount Diablo Paintings


Before the Rains 14 x 21

Mount Diablo Blue 14 x 14

I've been painting pretty close to home ,these are both from the West Side of Danville, "Before the Rains" was painted at the Eugene O'Neill National historic site above Danville and "Mount Diablo Blue" was painted a few blocks away. Both were started on location and finished in the studio. I was interested in how the summer fog softened the colors in " Mount Diablo Blue" and how the overcast rain clouds and late fall vegetation made the mountain quietly rich and glowing in "Before the Rains". 
I can't wait to get out there and paint when the rain stops!
