Along the Charleston Slough,
Palo Alto Baylands Park
Oil on canvas      16" x 20"

This piece was painted on location at the edge of the Baylands Preserve. I especially like the way the view of field through the eucalyptus trees seems to go on forever.

This piece is framed in wood, with a hand painted  "oatmeal" colored liner. The outside dimensions are 19.5 x 23.5. It looks like this:

View of the Tower of David, Jerusalem
9.5" x 13"    oil on board

The Virtual Paintout is in Jerusalem this month. I stopped on Dror Eliel, a quiet street, to paint across the way to the Old City walls, and the Tower of David. I was attracted to the picturesque and timeless feeling of this scene, without realizing that this is an important piece of history. The tower and the citadel were built over 2100 years ago, and have been fought over, destroyed and rebuilt many times. 

I hope you will visit my Gallery at The Daily Paintworks, to see more of my work.

Late Spring at the Annex
16" x 20" oil on canvas
framed, 19.5" x 23.5" 

In late spring, the almond trees have finished blooming, time has moved on. The grasses are growing long and drying out but everything still has that feeling of being fresh and green.

I love painting here at this small part of Cuesta Park - called the Annex - because it still has a feeling of wildness and space. Once an old orchard, now a bit of open space, it is a reminder of how things "naturally" are.

This piece has been exhibited, so it is framed - in wood, with a painted boarder, ready to hang. Here's how it looks:

If you would like to bid on it, or see more of my work, please visit my Gallery at The Daily Paintworks.

The Quiet of the Night
9.5" x 13"  oil on board

This piece is very similar to another, "Waiting Up". It is a commission, but not a copy (I do not do copies, as such). I agreed to paint it again, because the theme is one I know from experience. It is about how quiet and still the night is while you wait for someone important to come home, long after the rest of the world has gone to sleep. 

I have many more paintings on my Gallery page at The Daily Paintworks, I hope you will visit there.
