Twelve Trees Summer

Twelve Trees Summer

40" X 60" oil on canvas. 

This piece is a benchmark in my journey as an artist. I have had a vision of where I want to take my work for a long time. As an artist it’s always a battle between vision and reality. That push pull of what I want to do  and what I can do and what I actually do. It’s when the lines between get blurred that growth and accomplishment are one and a piece that’s above the rest comes to life. This is one of those pieces. "Twelve Trees Summer".

 

Moonrise over Bristlecone Sketch

Moonrise over Bristlecone Sketch

10" X 16" Oil on Canvas

This is the sketch that inspired the two studio pieces. It was a magical Tahoe sunset. These late summer moonrises are such a treat. Warm blues and vibrant golden yellows and olive greens. I was so grateful to capture this sketch and lovely evening.

I have been waiting a long time to capture this scene. Tahoe is a study in Blues, there are so many going on in a simple sunset. When a full moon appears in late summer it's magical.

Twelve Trees Spring

24" X 48" Oil on Canvas

This is the second in the Twelve Trees series. Spring is so full of vibrant color. New life bursting on to the scene. Clear blues of cool spring days with white fluffy clouds.

Bristlecone Beach Moonrise

48" X 36" Oil on Canvas

These late summer sunsets into moonrises are magical at Lake Tahoe. I have wanted to go back and visit them all year. I was grateful that I could witness this lovely evening. It inspired me.

Hint of Summer

10" X 16" Oil on Canvas

These 12 Trees in Carnelian Bay have inspired so much of my work. This was an early summer sketch that I used for the large piece "Twelve Trees Summer". I love my "plein air" sketches. I have difficulty painting from photographs. So much of the essence of a landscape is captured when I go out plein air.

Twelve Trees Winter

48" X 36 Oil on Canvas

This is the first in the Twelve Trees series. Funny how I started with winter. The cold bare branches in the grip of winter. Icy grey blues dominate this scene.
