Summer Morning Russian River, Evening Eucalyptus, and Chileno Valley Cow



Summer Morning, Russian River  17 x21



Evening Eucalyptus 11 x17

Chileno Valley Cow 11x 11

I am trying some new locations and subject matter with these.
The coastal bright haze was a challenge, evening light is something I need practice with and the one cow sat still long enough to be painted.

Award of Excellence in Watercolor at the 16th American Impressionist Society Exhibit at Trailside Galleries, Scottsdale



 After the Fire Vlll won the Award of Excellence for Watercolor at the 16th Annual Exhibit of the American Impressionist Society at Trailside Galleries.

I am beyond thrilled to have been awarded this from Juror Carolyn Anderson, one of the most masterful painters I know of.

These photos are thanks to Tonya Zenin and Ellen Howard since I was not able to be there. 

These Annual Impressionists Exhibits are simply amazing in terms of the quality of the paintings and the professionalism shown by the organization and I feel privileged to be a part of them.

Here's a few extra photos. What a great color ribbon and wall for this painting and frame!
