Snake Pond,
Cape Cod 
Acrylic on canvas,  9" x 12"

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. Then I thought about it for a while – how could I make this picture fun and just a little different....   Well, as you can see, it was a lot of fun and it is a bit different, certainly for me!  You can see where I painted by clicking here!

This painting was painted on all sides of the canvas. You can frame it or hang it just as it is.

To see more of my work, please visit my Gallery page at The Daily Paintworks, or visit one of the other sites I show at - Artists de Studios, Facebook has several really nice art pages, Landscape Painters is just one of them!

Here for Now
9" x 12"  oil on canvas

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.
