Painting a person in the landscape gives a sense of scale.
Done during a 3-hour pose. Just wanted to deal with two colors, transparent red oxide and titanium white. Sometimes working with a full color palette is just too tiring in the evening. A touch of blue was added. She had these beautiful blue eyes.

I saw these bunches of sunflowers for sale. Bought them and set them up in my studio. They lasted for quite a while to get two good paintings out of them.

I had been going around to different band performances and taking photos of various musicians in action. With this particular musician he was performing with 4 other musicians on a hot summer eve. What I wanted to captured is his fingering on the guitar. The fingering of a musician defines the music and the handling of his instrument. And his soul patch captures his music.

On Wednesdays, Davis artist Betty Berteaux, would lead a group of artists to various places throughout Yolo and surrounding counties. This particular Wednesday, we went inside the Yolo Basin Wildlife Reserve located next to the Yolo Causeway, a stretch of a bridge highway that leads into Sacramento. From the causeway as I’m driving across, I can see stretched of land filled with wildlife and rice fields. I found out that it is a hunting ground for ducks during the fall.
Ann Brice, the caretaker of the Yolo Basin, took us to a beautiful spot, Green Lake. Quite peaceful and away from the noises of the Yolo Causeway.
