Plein Air Spring Training : two small ones on my easel now

 Wine Country Wind Break 9 x 12 Available Fairmont Gallery Sonoma


Spring Barn 11 x 14 Available Fairmont Gallery Sonoma

We've had some rain and the land is starting to green up. These paintings may be finished ,I am not quite sure.
It was great to get out of the studio and paint in the fresh air. The top " Wine Country Windbreak" was painted in a hidden valley on the way to the Livermore wine country. I was next to a horse pasture and got to watch the horses and bluebirds and hawks perched in the trees. "Spring Barn" attracted me because of the quality of the reflected light on the barn. These aren't great photos and I will try to get better ones.

Here is how mine look on exhibit at the Autry Museum. So glad I went to this world class event at a spectacular museum. Context is everything! Both paintings sold. The California Art Club promotes this exhibit to collectors and it makes a huge difference, many red dots at the reception.
