This month The Virtual Paintout is in Liverpool, and areas surrounding it. Traveling northeast on the Google Street View, I found this quiet corner where time seemed to have slowed down. It was so peaceful and serene, I knew I wanted to stop and paint right there!

This piece is painted on all sides, you can frame it up, or you can hang it, just as it is.

Cuesta Park Quickie
9" x 12" oil on canvas
starting bid: $75


It was a beautiful spring day and I had the chance to get out and paint, so I headed over to Cuesta Park Annex, here in Mountain View. Because my time was limited, I needed to paint as quickly as possible and get it done in just one session. It was really fun, but I felt like I was racing the clock!


This piece is painted on all sides of the canvas. It can be framed up, or you could hang it just as it is.

Backyard Nocturne
9" x 12"  o/c
starting bid: $75

Sometimes a painting just happens. You turn a corner, or look up - and there it is, waiting to be painted! That was just what happened to me late one night when I stepped outside. The cool light of the waning moon contrasted beautifully with the warm glow from my windows, giving the backyard a special kind of radiance. The warm glow from the city lights and from the buildings across the street added to the effect.

This painting is painted on all sides of the canvas - it can be framed or hung up just as it is.

Dahlia Season, 
Murska Sobota

I traveled through Slovakia with The Virtual Paintout -  that's where we paint (or draw) local scenery using Google Street Views. This month we are in Slovenia. I came upon this charming little house just when the dahlias were all in bloom. As you can see here, it seems like a very pleasant place to stop and stay for a while!

First Light
Washington, D.C.
9" x 12"   oil on canvas
 $75

The Virtual Paintout went to Washington DC this month to visit the Nation's capital! While many of the artists chose the parks or monuments, I wandered around the neighborhoods until I came upon Congress Heights. I found this quiet street just as the sun was coming up. (See it here.) It was peaceful and beautiful, and I knew I could capture it perfectly in bright fresh colors!

This piece is painted on all sides, you can frame it up, or you can hang it, just as it is.

Bay Area Haze
9" x 12"  oil on canvas
 $75.

We don't get a lot of haze air in the San Francisco Bay Area in winter, but when we do it is kind of pretty to paint! Not so pretty to breathe of course. This area has gotten almost no rain in the past several months and it shows in the air - dusty, dry, and , well, full of color.  It's perfect weather for plein air painting - but we could really use some rain.



This piece is painted on all sides of the canvas. It can be framed up, or  hung  as  is.

The Virtual Paintout is visiting Cape Cod, Massachusetts this month - this is a painting challenge using Google Street View. I toured around  until I found this nice place  by this big pond.

Here for Now
9" x 12"  oil on canvas
$65.

This is another of the vanishing trees of Mountain View, where big development is running rampant. I didn't even see this tall, gangly tree until the old Tropicana Motel was torn down. There it was, standing solitary in the morning sun - a little island of nature in a sea of broken concrete. Those other trees (beside the big-box Western Appliance store, now gone) seemed to stand by, providing a little quiet company. These trees are are the last of many on these lots, and I wanted to document them before they are gone.

This painting was painted on all sides, it can be framed or hung  just as it is.
