2014-3-19 at Granite Mountain

Yet another attempt at this beautiful mountain in my backyard. This is the first painting after I came back from Eric Merrell's workshop in the Anza Borrego Desert State Park, CA. What a beautiful place, so inspiring! I will be posting the paintings…

Winter Plains

Another view of the Bill Williams Mountain, with the blue distant mountain standing out against the golden grasses of winter. I actually stood by the side of a 50 mph road where cars zoomed by me every minute or so sending a rumble and almost…

Heading North

Here is my painting for the Day 21 of the 30 in 30 challenge. Another one that I actually painted over an old painting. I feels like I am just starting to understand the power of oil paints. I come from a  watercolor background so I am always…

Blue Hills and San Francisco Peaks

Blue Hills 8"x 10" oil on panel I did two paintings yesterday, back-to-back, literally.  Painted one, turned around and painted the second one facing the other way. I actually reused some of my pre-used panels that I didn't very…

Looking East-Winter-5pm

Another one from the gorgeous view that you get when you climb up the hill behind our house. It just about a 360 degree panoramic view. From Bill Williams mountain in the north to the San Francisco peaks at the base of which Flagstaff is situated.…

Thumb Butte, Day 13, 30 in 30

After the figure painting session this morning, I actually also did a plein air (phew!), I am behind and I need to catch up. So here are the efforts... I am happy with it overall. I feel like I got a teeny bit closer to the look and feel that…

Landscape study, Day 8 of 30

Here is an 8" x 10" study that I did plein air today for the Day 8 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. Up on the hill behind our house, when the sun gets low, you can see mountains all around with a different shadow structure on each of…
