Plein air Los Rios, San Juan Capistrano

Amanda and I did some plein aire painting today at Los Rios street in San Juan Capistrano. It was a beautiful day. Amanda is a member of Socalpapa and I will be also in the near future. That is the group we were out with. We each did two paintings. These are about 90% and 80% done. The light runs out so fast late in the afternoon. I did the first one in about 3 hours or so, and the second one only had brief time of about 2 hours, along with lunch, and the conversations about art with other artists, as well as interested people who walk up and want to talk to the artist. Not bad.......please feel free to comment.

Tuscan fields

Welcome to my new virtual studio. I am setting out to be an artist in the truest sense. Here will be all my completed works on view. So, welcome all art lovers.

Here is my first piece, a scene from Tuscany, somewhere between Siena and Montepulciano, from a trip last year in November. It was a brisk day and the last bits of light were cast between the shadows of the clouds on the hillsides in warm tuscan colors. I hope you enjoy viewing my work.

Please feel free to leave comments, and welcome to all artists and collectors.
