Two Small Works, California Eucalyptus 6 x 6
Eucalyptus trees have so much color especially the blues, teals and purples in the shadows and golds in the highlights, I like to see how little green I can use and still have them read as trees.

Randy Higbee Gallery ,Three 6 x 6 "s Accepted
Trying my hand at some smaller pieces again. I find that very simple two or three value compositions simplify things for me when working this small. My favorite is Windbreak at Dusk because of the way the silhouettes of the trees work and the limited color palette for the late day light.
These three were all accepted by the Randy Higbee Gallery 6x 6 Exhibit and will be on display December3rd to December 22nd with a reception on December 3rd From 5:00 to 9:00pm
The Randy Higbee Gallery is in Costa Mesa . Here is a link to the gallery for details. Randy Higbee Gallery Web Site

Close to Home: Plein Air Painting "Gold Field"
Painted Plein Air about five miles from where I live. The view is from Old School Road off of Finley Rd.
I am lucky to be able to get out to open space so near to where I live.
Finley Rd is the entrance to Morgan Territory Open Space, an East Bay park that is a wonderful area to hike in. . There were some hawks hunting over the field as this was painted.
Ideal painting conditions with summer color and cooler temperatures.
