Tuula's Milk Goats 18x24 Acrylic NFS

A gift for Tuula, who makes magnificent cheese from these goat's milk.
In a departure of style, I thought the subjects were a bit comical and needed to be rendered in a lighthearted way.

Willamette River /Plein Air (June 6) 12x16 $275

On location with a 1st time plein air student and the weather was very overcast. Needless to say it was a challenge for me to find contrasting values and color diversity in this landscape. The student had his share of learning on that day!

Iris Fields / Kaiser, Oregon

This one still has bugs on it and is quite wet. I was anxious to post and share cause it was such a great spot and I liked the way it turned out.

Creativity increases as judgement and criticism decrease

Lake Natoma III / 2011

A beautiful Sacramento day. Was surprised to see the grass on the hills this dry, this early in the season. Maybe the recent rains brought back some green?
