"Radio Flyer" 12"x16" (Click here to bid on eBay)

"Radio Flyer"
This painting was created from a shot I took at Frank Ordaz's home a year ago this May. Frank has an amazing home in Auburn, California that he has turned into a secret garden. After his two boys out-grew this wagon, it became his garden caddy.
I was covered with Poison Oak rash and trying to forget about it, so shooting scenes and plein air painting with Frank was the only thing that made me forget about how miserable I felt. I also "stole" another shot that I painted last year from his place, a scene from his front porch. Thanks Frank!

"Morning at Superstition" 12"x16" (Click here to bid on eBay)

"Morning at Superstition"
This is my first post in about three months. For one reason or the other I've not
had the time or energy to paint in oils, but finally last month my wife's sister and husband, Jim and Ellen Heeney, visited the valley and one of the places we took them was a trip out to Superstition Mountain just east of here. The hike to the base of this cliff was enough to inspire at least one painting. I hope I can find a couple more scenes from that hike to paint again. I like this one because Spring makes even the desert green.
