Plein Air

Ok, waterfalls are hard to paint plein air! This is at the end of one of my bike rides. I took this week off and painted this Wednesday afternoon. There is actually a bridge over the falls that I felt was distracting and I had painted in on another outing. A challenge I felt was worth the effort.

Fall Colors Mid-December

8"x10" oil on linen panel

It seems the trees turned overnight here. I was afraid with the drought there would be no color this year. What a wonderful surprise!

Shades of Orange

I painted this last weekend. As I painted, it was getting colder, but the light was growing warmer.
